Everyone’s always looking for that big hit on the stock market to turn their money from thousands to millions, or from millions to billions. Most people might think the key to that is finding the big stock that the media is raving about or buying information that the billionaire investors use. But Paul Mampilly explains otherwise in his newsletters that share investment secrets. Mampilly says the real secret to investing is finding brand new companies that are most likely to do well in their niche, and then selling their stock when it’s high. Mampilly reads up a lot on the direction of millennials and how they’ll be the biggest pieces to the stock market puzzle in the future.
Paul Mampilly has said in an interview that one thing he looks at is how he could be wrong about investing because he believes being a good investor means being willing to listen to others’ opinions and not getting stuck on one way to do it. He’s certainly changed his approach to investing over the years both as an employed portfolio advisor and an independent consultant. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Montclair State University and an MBA from Fordham University. He’s been an advisor with Deutsche Bank, ING, Banker’s Trust and Royal Bank of Scotland.
Mampilly’s biggest accomplishments came after he was hired by Kinetics International Fund, one of the biggest institutional investments hedge funds in New York City. Mampilly guided investors to funds that returned as high as 20% annually. In 2008, he entered the Templeton Foundation’s investment competition competing against some of the top investors in the world. The US housing crisis was at its peak during this competition, but Mampilly found other stock to invest in and turned $50 million into $88 million and won the competition.
Mampilly decided several years after winning the Templeton Foundation’s competition that he needed to retire and spend more time with family. He continued to invest for his own purposes and came up with the idea to share his portfolio with those who could benefit from learning his investment secrets. He shares his secrets in newsletters he writes at Banyan Hill Publishing and also does part-time consulting at Capuchin Consulting. He was one investor who predicted the success of Facebook, Netflix and Sarepta Therapeutics in their early stages and just about all his investments have turned profits in some way.
