Paul Mampilly Is Talking About What 2018’s Best Investments Look Like

Paul Mampilly is an investment expert who moved from being a Wall Street insider to sharing his knowledge with the outsiders. He writes newsletters for Banyan Hill Publishing and in his latest article he talks about what 2018 holds for buying stocks. It may not have the same explosive growth all across the board that 2017 had, but if you look at mega trends stocks, Mampilly says these could really boost your portfolio. Mega trends include financial developments such as person-to-person lending apps, blockchain technology, cardless ATM apps and cryptocurrency. Another mega trend to look out for is the “Internet of Things” which will be devices such as smart appliances connected to the internet, voice-activated search apps and self-driving vehicles eventually.

Paul Mampilly has looked for new opportunities at each stage of his life, a characteristic he inherited from his father who found a job in the UAE and was able to send Mampilly and his sister to college with the money he earned. Mampilly got his bachelor’s degree at Montclair State University and shortly after joined the research department at Deutsche Bank. He caught onto the basics of investing so quickly that within a year he had risen to portfolio manager. He also worked for ING, Banker’s Trust, Sears, Royal Bank of Scotland and a Swiss Bank during the next 10 years.

From banking, Paul Mampilly went to professional consulting for a few years at Capuchin Consulting. Then he became an advisor at a major hedge fund firm in Kinetics International Fund. He helped bring in over $25 billion in assets under management and Barron’s quoted the firm as bringing in returns for client investments that reached over 40% in annual returns. Mampilly made the biggest news when he joined the Templeton Foundation’s competition during the thick of the financial crisis, and turned $50 million into $88 million during that time and winning the grand prize.

Around 2015, Paul Mampilly decided to retire so that he could spend more time with his family, and it allowed him to compile his newsletters that he intended for people who would otherwise not have access to the information. He grew a subscriber base of over 60,000 readers in a short time and most of them spoke highly of how Mampilly’s stock advice really worked. He has shown his followers stocks in his own portfolio, and he was noted for being an early investor in companies like Sarepta Therapeutics and Netflix early on.

According to Filipe Montoro Jens, Public-Private Partnerships Could Give Brazilian Local Governments Some Much Needed Reprieve

The Brazilian economy has experienced a few jitters in the last couple of years. After decades of tremendous and consistent growth, the largest economy in South America slightly slowed down in 2008/2009 owing to the global financial crisis. Again, in 2015, tough economic times drove the economy into recession and put tremendous pressure on the government. With the recession diminishing government resources, it has not been able to serve the public, especially in the area of infrastructure development, as prudently as it has in previous years. Fortunately, according to Filipe Montero Jens, there is an effective solution to this conundrum in private-public partnerships.

Public-private partnerships are agreements where members of the private sector get involved in delivering public services and amenities. According to Filipe Montoro Jens, these partnerships are an effective way for local governments to continue running smoothly even in the current financial crisis.

More on Filipe Montoro Jens

Filipe Montoro Jens is a Brazilian finance and infrastructure expert. He currently serves as the CEO of Energizer Captacao S.A and has previously served as a director at Santo Antonio Energia. Additionally, he was also a director of Braksem S.A. for the three years between 2010 and 2013. Jens points to the example of the Brazilian municipality of Porto Alegre which has gone as far as creating facilitative legislation to guide the implementation of public-private partnerships. The municipality recently created a governance organ (the Program Management Board Partnerships) to define the concessions and modalities of public-private partnerships transparently.

Owing to his extensive experience in finance, he widely consulted by members of the press on issues related to government and private spending on infrastructure. He has spoken extensively on how local governments can become more responsible financially through prudent waste elimination strategies and investing more on revenue-fetching endeavors.
