Paul Mampilly Reveals 10 Rules to Guide 2019 Investing

Banyan Hill Publishing’s favorite author, Paul Mampilly, was recently featured on the Gazette Day website in an article by Erica Smith. The article was titled “Paul Mampilly’s 10 Predictions for Business in 2019. The article indicates that the successful investor Paul believes there are several changes occurring in the oncoming year that could affect businesses and investors alike. Paul Mampilly has more than two decades of experience working on Wall Street in different capacities. He worked as a financial analyst and a hedge fund manager for large corporations. He even won Barron’s “World’s Best” title for his business investments during the economic downturn in 2008.

He decided to leave Wall Street for main street when he decided to join Banyan Hill Publishing as the editor and writer of his financial newsletters, including Profits Unlimited. Mampilly reveals that it is important to understand the market as the year is brought to a close. Having an idea of what’s in store for the market can help investors understand the best opportunities. Mampilly believes that some of the biggest investment strategy changes will be in the way businesses market their products. He believes Big Data will be available to smaller businesses, not just the giant corporations with huge marketing budgets. Big Data will allow smaller businesses to have greater insights into their customers buying patterns and how they prefer to consume the products.

The large businesses will also need to adapt to modern consumers. Paul Mampilly says that large corporations have spent too long idling in outdated marketing strategies. Instead, they will need to adapt a highly personalized strategy to help stay connected with their customers. This will create a dramatic shift in the way big companies market their products. Paul Mampilly believes all companies, both large and small, will need to work on developing true relationships with their customers by developing unique interactions between the business and consumer to promote trust. Voice search will also be a huge opportunity for businesses looking for new marketing channels. Smart speakers like Amazon’s Echo and Google Home will allow people to search for information via voice rather than text. This means that the algorithms in the rankings will change and will affect the ways businesses reach out to their customers in the business world.

 

Shervin Pishevar says that Silicon Valley has transcended physical space to become an idea

Shervin Pishevar ranks among the most successful venture capitalists of the last decade. As the founder and CEO of Sherpa Capital, he has provided critical financing for some of the largest and best-known names in the tech world. Projects on which Shervin Pishevar has played an indispensable role include the founding of Uber, Airbnb and Virgin Hyperloop. As an entrepreneur working on his own, Shervin Pishevar has also founded a number of high-profile and very successful tech firms. These include Ionside, WebOS and Social Gaming Network.

 

When he isn’t consumed with overseeing his massive tech empire, Shervin Pishevar moonlights as one of the most influential thinkers in the Twitterverse. With a Twitter feed that boasts more than 100,000 followers, Pishevar has the attention of some of the most important thought leaders in the world of technology and beyond, giving him outsized influence even for his own high standing in the world of finance.

 

One of the issues that will confront the U.S. tech space in the years to come is the fact that Silicon Valley itself has transcended physical space to become an idea. This means that the San Francisco Bay area, according to Pishevar, will continue to see sharp declines in population, including its ability to attract new talent.

 

Pishevar says that the simple reality is that there are many places around the globe that can easily compete with San Francisco in terms of lifestyle, amenities and cost. For example, Pishevar points out that countries like Vietnam and the Philippines have many places that are arguable nicer, better for businesses and feature more idyllic surroundings than the San Francisco Bay Area. But these places often cost only the tiniest fraction of what living in Silicon Valley costs.

 

Pishevar says that, increasingly, entrepreneurs from around the globe and even within the United States itself are looking at these other places and all of the telecommuting options that are currently available. And they are consistently choosing to no longer flock to a city where the median home costs in the millions of dollars.
