Digital Mode recently published Harvey Hale’s article Paul Mampilly Encourages Investors to Focus on the Internet of Things”. The article reveals the Banyan Hill Publishing editor’s perception of the latest trends in investing for the future.
Mampilly recently revealed that he raised his children with more knowledge than most on theories of investing and finance. Ever since he retired when he was 42, the entrepreneur has made sure that his children understand the financial world and how to invest. He left Wall Street after an incredibly successful career as a hedge fund manager, so his children are learning from an expert. Their level of understanding in terms of stocks and investing are often greater than many adults in the states.
When Mampilly is unsure of how to teach about a new kind of technology, he tests out his explanations on his children first. Because they understand about investing, they often recognize the important technologies and the possible risk. Mampilly revealed that technology can often be risky for investors because innovations fail. Even when they begin as incredibly popular, they are not always successful over the long run. Some technologies are too expensive to maintain or build, some are too obscure and never develop a strong customer base, and some are only trends that fade out quickly.
One technology Paul Mampilly believes will be a successful investment for many of his readers is the technology of the internet of things. Many people feel this term is confusing, though the technology of the internet of things includes the different devices that connect a person to the internet and to other people. These technologies are focused on collecting data and transmitting it, allowing the devices to communicate with each other.
Paul Mampilly was also featured on the Chronicle of Week article “Paul Mampilly Recently Featured on Entrepreneur Podcast Network, where the author Hannah Lewis Cottrell reveals how Mampilly transitioned from Wall Street to entrepreneur.
Mampilly revealed that because most people don’t have a background in investing, they often need some help understanding all the different aspects of the stock market in today’s world. Mampilly spent his time on Wall Street learning how to research for twelve hours each day, learning about the different stocks he recommends to his clients while watching others that may affect the market.
