Jim Rogers

Jim Rogers is an author, financial commentator, adventurer, and noted international investor. After attending Yale and Oxford University, Rogers co-founded the Quantum Fund, a global-investment partnership, with George Soros.  During the next 10 years, the portfolio gained 4200%, while the S&P rose less than 50%.  Rogers then decided to retire – at age 37.  He served as a full professor of finance at the Columbia University Graduate School of Business, and, in 1989 and 1990, as the moderator of WCBS’s ‘The Dreyfus Roundtable’ and FNN’s ‘The Profit Motive with Jim Rogers’. In 1990-92, Rogers fulfilled his lifelong dream: motorcycling 100,000 miles across six continents, a feat that landed him in the Guinness Book of World Records and which allowed him to analyse the countries through which he traveled for investment ideas.  He chronicled his one-of-a-kind journey in Investment Biker: On the Road with Jim Rogers.  Jim embarked on further adventures, including a 3-year, round-the-world, journey through 116 countries, recounted in Adventure Capitalist (2004). Other books include Hot Commodities: How Anyone Can Invest Profitably In The World’s Best Market (2004), A Bull in China (2007), A Gift to My Children, Street Smarts: Adventures on the Road and in the Markets (2013), The Future of Japan (2019).
