What Paul Mampilly feels sets him aside from others in the investment game is his expansive history in this field. Mampilly has been the manager at a trading desk, been an analyst and a managed money. He feels these experiences alone make him different from the average investor, on top of the fact that he reads about the stocks his clients are purchasing for 12 to 14 hours daily.

When asked how the stock market has changed over the last few years, he didn’t even know where to begin. He believes the biggest issue lies in computers. There are computers that use technology that the average investor has no access to, making it easier for large investment companies to beat out the little guy. The computer gathers information that the investment companies can use against their less seasoned opponents. Paul Mampilly believes these systems are putting at home investors at a disadvantage. Another new practice Mampilly has seen is the idea of investing now and waiting to see growth later, as opposed to investing in the most profitable company first as they did 20 years ago.

Mampilly flexed some of his old financial muscle at an investment competition for the Templeton Foundation where he turned 50 million dollars in 88 million dollars. Though he’s out of the game actively, Mampilly has definitely still got it.
