Editor of Real Wealth Strategist, of Banyan Hill Publishing, Matt Badiali, began his career as an expert in earth science and geology. Graduating with an undergraduate degree from Penn State University, and a postgraduate degree from Florida Atlantic University, Matt Badiali had full intentions of leading the life of a scientist. It wasn’t until 2004, while pursuing his Doctor of Philosophy at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, that Mr. Badiali garnered an interest in the investment world. After being convinced by a friend of the advantage he would have over competing investors due to his intimate knowledge of the geological world, Matt Badiali eventually became actively involved with investments regarding metals, energy and natural resources, helping his clientele to consistently see significant returns on their investments. Today, when looking back on the struggles of his father regarding investing, he often writes with him in mind, and when seeking out new investment opportunities for his clients, he utilizes a “boots on the ground” approach that allows him to garner firsthand knowledge of the prospective commodity.
Matt Badiali’s insistence on keeping a hands-on approach regarding investments has taken him all over the world, and he has visited a number ofmines and drilling sites in places such as Singapore, Hong Kong, Papua New Guinea, Haiti, and Switzerland. This practice of visually seeing the places that he intends to invest in has helped him to bring his writing to life, as he consistently uses real-world examples to connect with his readers. Reading is an essential process for Mr. Badiali as well, and according to him, it is critical, acting as a pool of knowledge that contributes to his research, in turn allowing to continue to generate content for his audience.

As an avid reader, Matt Badiali is constantly paying attention to the shifting economic trends of the world, and he is very excited about what the future holds. With the world now taking on a more electric-centric identity, the oil and natural gas industry is due to see a major disruption in the near future. Realizing that the technology associated with gas-powered vehicles is over a century old, the new shift in electric cars, which he believes won’t be fully realized until were are able to create a municipal scale battery, will completely change the trajectory of the modern world in a fashion similar to what occurred during the switch from whale oil to kerosene.
