Matt Badiali uses an approach that is hands-on, and enables him to talk to everyone. This is effective for his research, and investment prospects. His work has led him to Switzerland, Turkey, Haiti, Singapore, Hong Kong, Iraq, Papua New Guinea, and numerous destinations in the world. He has visited the world’s oil wells, and mines, analyzed geologic data, and conducted interrogations concerning the latest prospects for resources with CEO’s. He discovered the only way to understand what is happening is to see it personally, including everything from company results to local politics. He will not believe an investment is safe unless he has seen it himself.
Due to the training Matt Badiali has received as a geologist, he can identify red flags best noted when on the ground. This includes the length of time a crew requires to drill a hole, or the smoothness of the operation. The biggest expense for most small companies is the drilling process. He can determine the potential, and health of a company by watching the drillers work. For more than a decade, Matt Badiali has combined his investment training with his knowledge as a geologist to find great profits. He worked for a drilling company as a geologist, and for an environmental company as a consultant before coming to Banyan Hill. He attended Penn State University where he earned his B.S. in Earth Sciences, and his Masters in Geology was obtained at the Florida Atlantic University.
