Paul Mampilly is an American investor, former hedge fund manager and winner of the prestigious Templeton Foundation investment competition. Paul has been featured on CNBC, Fox Business News and Bloomberg TV. He is the founder of the popular investment newsletter Profits Unlimited, where he uses his skills, experience and knowledge as a former Wall Street insider to guide his more than 40,000 subscribers into stocks that are primed to shoot higher.
Born in India, Paul came to the United States as a young man and quickly joined the ranks on Wall Street. With 25 years of experience in the investment world, he started his career in 1991 as a research assistant at Deutsche Bank. From there, he quickly rose to prominent positions managing multimillion dollar accounts for Bankers Trust and ING. He has also managed money for the Royal Bank of Scotland, Sears and a private Swiss bank.
Eventually, he was recruited by the owners of a $6 billion hedge fund, Kinetics International Fund, to be its key manager. Under Paul’s leadership, the firm’s assets quickly rose to $25 billion, causing Barron’s to name it one of the “World’s Best” hedge funds for averaging 26% annual returns during Paul’s tenure.
Most notably, Paul was invited to participate in the prestigious investment competition put on by the Templeton Foundation. With a starting investment of $50 million, Paul managed to generate a 76% return in a single year, growing that investment to $88 million. That would be noteworthy in itself, except that he achieved this while the market was crashing during the 2008 and 2009 economic crisis, without shorting stocks.
Paul also has a remarkable track record in his personal investment account.
He invested in Sarepta Therapeutics in April 2012 when it was still in its infancy stage of developing a drug to treat muscular dystrophy. Eight months later, he sold for a 2,539% gain. He also invested in Netflix in late 2008 when he saw the future of television was moving to streaming videos online. He sold in May of 2010 for a 634% gain.
But that’s not the end of his list of big winners. He made a 239% gain on OLED Universal Display Corporation … 264% on Stratasys … 696% on Ariad Pharmaceuticals … 355% on Exact Sciences Corporation … 279% on Facebook … 327% on Olympus Corporation … 298% on Whole Foods … 269% on Cemex … 266% on Grifols … all for cumulative gains of 6,220%.
Eventually, Paul grew tired of the pace on Wall Street, so after making a series of formidable investment returns, he retired at the age of 42. However, he doesn’t consider himself to be “retired.” Now, instead of making money for the ultra-rich, Paul has shifted his focus in his retirement to making money for Main Street Americans.
To that end, Paul began writing Profits Unlimited in 2016 with one purpose in mind … find stocks that go up. Following his recommendations, people have written in to Paul saying they’ve made gains of $16,000 … $18,268 … $77,150 … $109,115 … even $250,000.
In addition to writing Profits Unlimited, Paul also writes a weekly column for our FREE newsletter, The Sovereign Investor Daily.
