Today, Paul Mampilly works as a senior editor with Banyan Hill Publishing, providing sound investment advice to “Main Street” Americans through his newsletters, Profits Unlimited, True Momentum, and Extreme Fortunes. Prior to joining Banyan Hill Publishing, Paul Mampilly worked as an analyst and hedge fund manager for some of the premier financial institutions on Wall Street. Since leaving his former career in 2016, Mr. Mampilly has parlayed his intricate understanding of the markets, into a bustling service that has amassed a readership of more than 60,000 subscribers. Still an active investor, he doesn’t consider himself to be retired, despite the changes regarding his new career path.
Born in a rural town in India, Paul Mampilly relocated to Dubai in 1974 – a decision made by his father, who was seeking to find more lucrative career opportunities. Despite some pushback from his peers, this proved to be the correct decision, as Dubai had recently discovered oil underneath the land, and Paul Mampilly’s father quickly carved out a profitable stake in the budding industry. By 1986, Mr. Mampilly had enrolled at Montclair State University, where he pursued a degree in business administration. He would later enroll at Fordham University, earning a master of business administration degree.
Soon after completing his undergraduate studies, Paul Mampilly began his career on Wall Street, working for Bankers Trust, which was later acquired by Deutsche Bank. During his Wall Street career, he would work as a research analyst with ING, and later, as a hedge fund manager with Kinetics Asset Management. Prior to joining Kinetics Asset Management, the hedge fund was valued at $6 billion, but during his tenure, Mr. Mampilly was able to use his sharp investing acumen to raise the value to over $25 billion. This feat was especially significant considering that he accrued a 43 percent rate of return during the recession. Today, as an independent investor, he continues to utilize the skills learned on Wall Street, often spending twelve to fourteen hours a day researching potential stocks to invest in and suggest to his subscription base.
