Matt Badiali’s career began in a rather unconventional way. He studied the sciences in college and earned a B.S. in earth science from Penn State University, and then a Master of Science in geology from Florida Atlantic University. He then spent 5 years working for a Ph.D. This is when his career, and life, took a turn. In 2004 a friend of Matt Badiali, who worked in the financial sector, asked Matt to help him find ways to help the average investor. Badiali decided to use his unique education and talents to help his friend toward this goal. To tackle this challenge of helping the average investor Matt had to come up with a strategy.
Matt discovered that writing as if he was talking to his father was the best way to write for the average investor. Matt witnessed his father struggle with amateur investing and realized that if he could write to help him, it would help others. Matt has continued on this career path. In 2017 he launched his newsletter, Real Wealth Strategist, with Banyan Hill. Matt Badiali has built a strong core of dedicated readers in the months since he started his blog. His approach to writing is unique because he travels extensively to speak to experts. He has been to, Peru, Hong Kong, Iraq, Singapore, and many other countries.
Within these countries he has visited mines, oil companies, and corporate headquarters, in the search for new investment ideas. When asked about a trend that excites him Matt Badiali believes that the switch to an electric-centric world will change everything. He believes it will be one of the most impactful changed in human history. He believes that this won’t occur until we create a battery big enough to power an entire city, but he predicts that the technology is forthcoming. Matt Badiali has taken an unusual path on the path to being a respected investment expert. He uses his scientific education and life experience to gain a unique perspective on investing. He then imparts that knowledge onto his readers and clients.
