Paul Mampilly has made some seemingly bold predictions throughout his career that have gained him recognition, including with his own stocks and mutual funds he’s purchased. Mampilly believes in breaking the old stereotype that the savviest investors are those with all the fancy university degrees and are connected with big names like Warren Buffet. So that’s why he started writing for Banyan Hill Publishing so that anyone interested in investing could learn how without any formal education in the field. He’s the author of “Extreme Fortunes,” “Profits Unlimited” and now “True Momentum.” Mampilly explains not only how to find and pick stocks, but how to look at economic trends to be able to find new companies that can grow and what Paul Mampilly knows.
Paul Mampilly is originally from India and came to the US to get an education in economics and finance. He’s reflected on his formal education and believes he could have taken up the profession as an investor and started his own company without attending college, but it was a degree from Montclair State University that helped Mampilly enter Deutsche Bank as a research analyst. He later completed an MBA in finance at Fordham University and then became a portfolio advisor at ING. Mampilly worked for several other investment banks before joining Kinetics International Fund.
Kinetics International Fund began with $6 billion in client assets under management, but after Paul Mampilly joined their team the firm started seeing returns of up to 20% on investments, and within a year Kinetics International grew to $25 billion in AUM. Before long, Mampilly became the talk of various magazines and journals inclduing Barron’s, and he was invited by the Templeton Foundation to take part in their competition in 2008. Paul Mampilly took a $50 million fund in that competition and found an investment that yielded 76% in returns in one year, and all while the housing crisis and economy hit the worst levels and Paul Mampilly on Facebook.
At age 42, Paul Mampilly decided it was time to leave the corporate investing world and spend more time with family and doing his own work, though he continued working with a company he co-founded, Capuchin Consulting. He started writing his newsletters at Banyan Hill Publishing a couple years ago, and his readers started becoming so amazed that his advice worked that 60,000 readers had signed up in just a matter of months. Mampilly also writes some free access blog posts from time to time and Paul Mampilly’s lacrosse camp.
