Paul Mampilly, Profits Unlimited founder, is an investment analyst, and a good one, if I may add. He shares his investment opinions on a monthly basis through his eight-page newsletter which has over 60,000 subscribers.
Mampilly is a University at Albany, SUNY alumni. He started his career in 1991 at Bankers Trust, where he was an assistant portfolio manager. He has close to 25 years’ experience in the finance industry and has been a portfolio manager for Deutsche Bank and ING.
Mampilly has a record of success, and this is probably why his newsletter is doing so well. In it, he recommends investments and explains, in detail, why he is of the opinion that that is a good idea. His writing technique is simple in such a way that a new investor is able to understand the concept. This goes a long way in building trust because no one would be willing to invest if they feel that the advice given didn’t have a strong basis. He has great passion for helping others succeed and this is evident in every issue published. Once his subscribers receive their issue, they can visit his website where they can track stocks. On a weekly basis, Mampilly picks two of the recommended portfolios and gives updates. Mampilly portfolio has a success rate of approximately 85%, with one recently increasing by over 150%.
Instead of the traditional approach where brokers do all the work for their clients, Mampilly prefers empowering his clients. He teaches them the secret to becoming a smart investor. His clients set up and use their brokerage accounts on their own. He teaches them how to trade stocks, track information and update their portfolios. He has taken safety measures on his website such that any information that is client related is safe.
Nothing is as reassuring as frequent updates to a client, and Mampilly knows this. When trades must be made, he sends out trade alerts to his clients and includes instructions on how to trade. He doesn’t forget to remind them of the importance of trading. He also updates his subscribers with information on the newest stocks.
In 2009, Mampilly participated in an investment competition hosted by the Templeton Foundation and emerged the winner after he invested 50 million dollars and yielded 88 million dollars, a gain of more than 75%. The fact that he was able to yield such an amount during one of the worst recessions that the country had ever faced gained him a lot of positive publicity.
