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.
