Paul Mampilly had traveled a long and tough journey before he got to the great position that he enjoys today as a billionaire investor. He came from India, brought up by a peasant father who experienced endless financial struggles to make ends meet for him and his family. Mampilly had a sister whom he loved very much, and they schooled together. However, there were doubts if his father could afford to take them to college, considering the financial struggles that he underwent. However, the father remained hopeful and kept his faith on, believing that one day they would experience a breakthrough, and his family would enjoy a beautiful living.
Luckily, Paul’s father got a job in Dubai, and hence he relocated to the place with the entire family. The situation there was lucrative and provided sufficient income to cater to the needs of the family. Paul Mampilly and his sister also got the chance to go to colleges and completed their higher education. Paul went to Montclair State University and later to the Fordham Gabelli School of Business where he pursued business administration. The Bankers Trust Company then employed him in the Wall Street America where he started working as the associate portfolio manager. He would later secure a promotion to become the firm’s portfolio manager.
A short while after the promotion, Bankers Trust was acquired by a German banking institution, Deutsche Bank, what made Paul Mampilly transition from his workstation to start working at the reputable bank as junior research personnel. He then moved to ING as the senior research manager, a position that taught him a lot to do with responsibility and accountability. He learned to manage portfolios worth a lot of billion dollars on behalf of the clients of the organizations for which he worked. After some time, Paul Mampilly grew a feeling that he had a lot of knowledge and skills at his disposal, but the only beneficiaries of his skills were the few investors who managed to pay the big institutions that hired him to do the work. He resigned and started assisting the majority of American individuals by giving them investment advice through newsletters and other publications.
