To be a successful investor, it is essential that people are always on the lookout for opportunities. Investors should be aware of everything that is going on around the world so that they can find opportunities that will give them impressive returns. According to leading investor Paul Mampilly, people need to understand the effects of politics on business industries, learn more about the relationship between natural disasters and resource shortage and other things to properly make a sound investment decision.

Paul Mampilly shares some great investment opportunities with his readers that are going to reap great rewards in the future. The first one is virtual reality entertainment that is soon going to overtake other forms of entertainment. Virtual reality games allow people to experience movies or games as if they are inside it. Companies in this industry have seen a growth rate of 900% in the past few years, and it seems to increase further. Another upcoming concept is that of 3D printing that is soon going to be turned into reality. The real estate industry is fast looking to use this technology to build homes much faster and easier. Since natural disasters often destroy homes that take years to rebuild, the 3D printing technology will help rebuild homes in a matter of weeks helping the industry to reduce their cost by around 40%.

Prescription drug market has always been a favorite investment field. But the industry is going to change entirely if Amazon realized their plans to enter the drug market. Paul Mampilly believes that Amazon is going to reduce the cost of the prescription medications by selling directly to their customers and cutting down on the middlemen. After the announcement by Amazon, the stocks of most of the top pharmacies have been on the decrease. Paul Mampilly warns against investing in these companies as Amazon’s new plan is going to damage their stock prices even further.

Paul Mampilly began his financial career by working at Deutsche Bank in 1991. Before that, he was a portfolio manager at Bankers Trust. He had also worked in companies such as Royal Bank of Scotland and Kinetics Asset Management, LLC as an investment manager.
