The great senior editor of the Banyan Hill Publishing, Paul Mampilly, is a man whose legacy will never fade in the history of the United States of America. He is on the record as the only person to come from rural India and became a trailblazer of the investment industry as he is today. He was brought up in India with his parents experiencing persistent financial constraints. Neither his father nor mother had formal employment; therefore the family of Paul Mampilly survived on an irregular income that his father earned working as a casual laborer. His father remained remorseful for failing to afford the best life that he wished for his children and family.
Amid this, Mampilly’s father went to Bombay, the largest city in India, to look for greener pastures. This met him with a rude shock since he found that the life there was worse. After a short while, he made up his mind to relocate his family to Dubai where Paul Mampilly started his normal day jobs. Luckily, it was not long since the country had started exporting oil. This was a jackpot for the family since Mampilly’s father started working in the oil mines. This changed the lifestyle of the family, and then his father could afford school fees for Mampilly and his sister.
Paul Mampilly joined the Montclair State University in 1986 and completed undergraduate program in 1991 after obtaining a degree in business administration. He later joined the Fordham Gabelli School of Business where he mastered the same discipline. After completing his studies, Paul Mampilly was employed at the Bankers Trust as the assistant to the portfolio manager at that time. He performed the role with a lot of zeal and was promoted to become the manager of the portfolio. Paul would later work at different companies and rose up the ranks to become a senior investment manager and consultant.
However, Mampilly felt that his work was not benefiting the common American but only the rich few investors who brought their investments under the organizations for which Paul worked. He decided to quit the employment and starter dispensing his knowledge and experience to the common American citizens using newsletters and other publications.
