Paul Mampilly once worked on Wall Street helping the wealthy become wealthier as a hedge fund manager with Kinetics Asset Management. He has since left Wall Street to help average Americans become wealthy. He joined Banyan Hill Publishing and started a newsletter called Profits Unlimited, which has over 90,000 subscribers who receive updates on the latest investment opportunities. An article on ChronicleWeek.com recently featured Eric Dye’s interview with Paul Manpilly on the Entrepreneur Podcast Network.
Paul said he has a unique perspective on how Wall Street works based on his experience as a trading desk manager, analyst, and money manager. He also spends 12 to 14 hours a day researching and tracking stocks, which is something average investors do not or cannot do. Paul researches companies he is considering making an investment in and tracks the stock market to see how the market affects the stock prices of these companies.
Paul Mampilly began working on Wall Street in the early 1990s. Eric asked him how the stock market has changed over the years, which drew a lengthy response. First, Paul Mampilly noticed that people started to do less trading while computers and trading robots were doing more of the trading. This gave large investment banks an advantage over the average trader. Second, ETFs replaced mutual funds as a popular investment vehicle. ETFs have made it harder for the average investor to succeed in the stock market because ETFs do not have a top fund manager that has trading patterns that the average investor can follow. Finally, investors act more like speculators than they did 20 years ago. Investors will purchase stocks in companies that have no profits hoping that these companies will earn profits in the future.
In 2008-2009 at the height of the financial crisis, Paul Mampilly was invited to participate in an investing competition put on by Templeton Foundation. Paul began with $50 million and finished with $88 million. Paul has proven that anybody can be a successful investor in any market.

It is the first time in the history of Noel Polk Lifetime Achievement Award to honor an architect. Robert Ivy did not imagine in his life that he’ll land such an award. Words that filled the air when Mississippi Institute of Arts and Letters (MIAL) made the announcement; show that he is the right man disposed for the award. The American Institute of Architects Chief Executive Officer and Vice President received the news in shock. Upon hearing the news, his President, Carl Elefente said that Robert Ivy deserved the award. The president however, was also shocked at the chances that led to Robert receiving the trophy, saying that MIAL has never awarded an architect.
Polk Lifetime Achievement Award is only given to people mostly living in Mississippi or have very close ties to the people of Mississippi. In order to receive the award, one has to come from Mississippi. While that remains to be the rule, it seems that this time, MIAL decided to go outside their normal selection routine. For many years, the award has been going to those people who through their exemplary artistic skills have shown tremendous prowess. Their works of art must also have a positive impact t o a majority of the people living in Mississippi. This time, it seems that Robert Ivy’s ways surpassed many.
Robert Ivy now joins a handful of Mississippians that have been honored by MIAL. Some of those who have been awarded include Leontyne Price, a singer who received award in year 2000, Walter Anderson (1989), and Morgan Freeman (2017). Sources close to MIAL point out to the reason why the institute chose Robert Ivy. Reliable sources confirm that back in Mississippi, perhaps, there is no one man like Ivy who has made it possible for the ordinary people to access modern architecture.
When giving the award, MIAL President Nancy Laforge said that it is high time the institution looked further to extend the awards to others that have also touched the common person. “Robert Ivy has done remarkable job as an author, an accomplished editor and an architect. We do not see why he will not deserve our Noel Polk Award,” said MIAL President.
