Matt Badiali has a hands-on, go-anywhere, talk-to-everyone approach to his investment prospects and research. His work has taken him to Papua New Guinea, Iraq, Hong Kong, Singapore, Haiti, Turkey, Switzerland and many other locations around the world. He’s visited countless mines and oil wells the world over, interrogated CEOs about their latest resource prospects and analyzed all manner of geologic data.

He’s found that you don’t really know what’s going on unless you see it for yourself. That goes for everything from local politics to company results. The best way to be sure an investment is safe (and correctly made) is to see it in person.

And Matt’s training as a geologist has enabled him to identify certain red flags that are best seen on the ground. For example, he likes to check on how skilled the drilling crews are — how long it takes them to drill a hole. Or how smooth the operation runs … in small companies, drilling often makes up the largest expense. Watching the drillers can tell a lot about the health and potential of a company.

For the last decade-plus, Matt has married his knowledge gained as a geologist with his training as an investor to uncover great profits.

Prior to joining Banyan Hill, Matt was a geologist for a drilling company and a consultant to an environmental company.

Matt has a B.S. in Earth Sciences from Penn State University and a Masters in Geology from Florida Atlantic University.
