Having studied at the Montclair State University and later in the Fordham Gabelli School of Business, Paul Mampilly was well equipped to begin his professional career. He had already obtained the necessary training in business administration at the institutions, both at the undergraduate and the master’s level. This gave him the qualifications to join the Wall Street America where he started with employment at the Bankers Trust. This was the best organization for Mampilly to begin his career journey because being an assistant portfolio manager at the organization, he was given responsibilities that enabled him to think rationally and within a few months, Paul Mampilly had adapted to the corporate world, and he was ready to work in the finance and investment sector.
Two years later, Mampilly’s significance in the company began to be felt. The senior management team appreciated his efforts in trying to transform his area of mandate and shortly, they promoted him to the position of a full portfolio manager. This was a great honor for Mampilly, and this recognition increased his motivation to work for the company. However, something strange happened; a German organization, Deutsche Bank acquired Paul Mampilly’s employer.
Therefore, Mampilly had to change his role as a portfolio manager to become a research assistant at the new organization. Paul Mampilly took the transition positively, and he knew that it was an opportunity to learn more ideas and concepts of the investment industry. He would later make a transfer to ING as the senior research analyst of the firm, but he never stayed for so long in the organization. Paul later moved to Kinetics Asset management where he was mandated to manage a hedge fund that had been distressed for an extended period. This tough task needed a lot to restore the performance of the asset strategy, but Mampilly was up to the task. Three years later, the distressed hedge fund under the management and guidance of Paul Mampilly had started to break even. In the next year, the hedge fund was listed as the best performing hedge fund in the American investment management industry. This was after it grew from $700 million to a whopping $8.5 billion within four years.
