The education journey of Paul Mampilly was not one of the easiest journeys that can be described. He underwent some struggles while in school, most of which were financial. His father had been unemployed for years since he had completed college and so he had been working as a casual worker in the nearby city of Bombay, in India. This was the country where Mampilly was born and raised as a very humble child. Later, the life of Paul Mampilly and his family would change after their father relocated them to Dubai. This country had been experiencing an economic boom after it had begun exporting oil and so it favored the livelihood of the family. Mampilly and his sister got the luck to enroll and complete their college education.
After the graduation, Mampilly had passed very well in his undergraduate studies, and so he got a chance to start working at the Wall Street, for the Bankers Trust Company. There, he joined as the assistant portfolio manager but was later promoted to a full manager, responsible for the company’s portfolio. Bankers Trust Company would later be acquired by the Deutsche Bank, a transaction that forces Paul Mampilly to transition his job to start working as a research assistant at the company. He was then poached by the ING which employed him as the senior research analyst.
After working as a research analyst at the ING for a while, Kinetics Asset Management later recruited him to become the manager of their hedge fund that had been performing poorly for some years. This was a challenge to Paul, but he was up to the task. After managing the hedge fund portfolio for a period less than a year, the value of the portfolio skyrocketed to $25 billion, yielding a historic investment return of 37.5% for the investors. This brought Paul Mampilly to the good books of the investment industry.
However, Paul felt that his service to the Americans was not as optimal as he would have wished. He had been using his expertise to boost the wealth of the “already wealthy” individuals and not the neglected majority of the American citizens. This made him quit his job and start publishing investment advice which he has been dispensing to the public at very affordable prices.
