Investors learn through experience and from other smarter investors. Putting your money in the right ventures and hedging on probable losses are jewels in investing. Paul Mampilly seems to have mastered the two going by his investment portfolio and remarkable successes that saw him scoop the Templeton Foundation investment competition in 2008 to 2009.
Paul Mampilly is a well-known Wall Street ‘bull’ born in India. As a young man, he moved to America. In 1991, Paul got his first job as a research assistant in Deutsche Bank. He later enrolled at Fordham University and got his MBA in 1996. In 2017, Paul plans on unveiling another research company in financial investment called True Momentum to complement Profits Unlimited. He attributes his success to reading widely, researching extensively on a stock and doing detailed write-ups.
Paul Mampilly’s investment journey began at Bankers Trust and ING, managing bank accounts. He then moved on to Royal Bank of Scotland and later to Sears. He was later to head hedging at the Kinetics International Fund, then competed at Templeton Foundation in 2008 to 2009 and invested in Netflix the same year. In 2012, he invested in Sarepta Therapeutics and in 2016 began writing Profits Unlimited having ‘retired’ from Wall Street.
Undeniably, the highlight of Paul’s investment prowess came in 2008-2009 when he won the Templeton Foundation investment competition, raising a $50 million investment to $88 million amidst the recession. However, his reach extends beyond the award. Other notable investment wins in Wall Street companies include:
• 355% gain in investment in Exact Sciences Corporation
• 327% financial growth in stocks in Olympus Corporation
• 269% on CEMEX Corporation
• 239% gain on initial investment in OLED Universal Display Corporation shares.
• 279% in Facebook Corporation
• 264% financial value gains in Stratasys
• 266% gain at Grifols
At 42, Paul quit Wall Street because he felt it did little to help the many in the lower classes who truly needed help in investing. Presently, Paul publishes financial and investment editorials for his Profits Unlimited newsletter. It is within his routine, to spend up to 40 hours on research and 30 in writing, before recommending a particular stock to a potential investor.
