While the way most people invest in stocks and mutual funds is to have a manager or broker administrate their funds, Paul Mampilly has shown a better way through his newsletters “Profits Unlimited” and “True Momentum.” Mampilly shared his ideas with Ideamensch on how he invests and helps and others with it.
Mampilly says the top trends to look for in investing are the “internet of things” and products that millennials like. Mampilly also said that sometimes you have to look at where you could be wrong instead of only looking at your own narrow viewpoint because you can learn from others. He said the most important thing about investing and business is always to put the customer ahead of money made.
Mampilly began investing after he achieved his bachelor’s degree from Fordham University. It wasn’t easy getting there and Mampilly at one time worked long hours at a gas station in order to stay in school. But he got his opportunity at Deutsche Bank when he became a research assistant. He started managing portfolios for more important clients at ING and Bankers Trust in the future and even moved into senior roles at the Royal Bank of Scotland and a private Swiss bank. In 2006 Mampilly joined the hedge fund markets when he became a manager at Kinetics International Fund and in less than a year he had grown the assets under management at the fund by $19 billion. Barron’s magazine named Kinetics International as the fastest-growing firm of its day.

Mampilly showed his savvyness best in 2008 when he made a big investment as part of the Templeton Foundation’s competition. That investment netted a 76% profit in the midst of the economic recession of late 2008 and early 2009. Paul Mampilly had made a lot of money that in just a few years he retired from Wall Street and decided to make investing about helping others. As part of his newsletters he’s made his portfolio available for subscribers to see and has shown them how to turn small stocks into big gains. “Profits Unlimited” has had many subscribers expressing their excitement about investments that have worked, and in less than a year it had 60,000 subscribers.
