Jim Rogers is a financial commentator, adventurer and international investor.
He is the co-founder of the Quantum Fund, a global investment partnership. After 10 profitable years when the portfolio gained 4,200% while the S&P rose less than 50%, he decided to retire, at the age of 37, but wouldn’t remain idle. Continuing to manage his own portfolio, Jim served as a professor of finance at Columbia University Graduate School of Business and was a regular media commentator.
At the same time, he laid the groundwork for his lifelong dream, an around-the-world motorcycle trip: more than 100,000 miles across six continents. That journey became the subject of Rogers’ first book, Investment Biker and earned him a place in the Guiness World Records.
Having returned to New York after his second record-setting trip of 152,000 miles, this time in a custom-made Mercedes Benz (chronicled in Rogers’ second book, Adventure Capitalist), he continues to comment in the media on financial topics, while he and his wife enjoy the pleasures of parenthood.
He is the author of Adventure Capitalist The Ultimate Road Trip and a renowned global investor who has been chronicled in many books including Jon Train’s Money Masters of Our Time and Jack Schwager’s Market Wizards. He has frequently featured in Time, The Washington Post, The New York Times, Barron’s, Forbes, Fortune, The Wall Street Journal, The Financial Times, and most publications dealing with the economy or finance. He has also appeared as a regular commentator and columnist in various media and has been a visiting professor at Columbia University. Although he had never written a book on practical investment advice, his third book, Hot Commodities, was published early in 2005 and immediately made most of the bestseller lists.
Jim Rogers’ strategies are simple and straightforward: You can start small and it is all about putting your money in stuff you understand, the basic materials of everyday life like sugar, cotton or copper. In 1998 Rogers started his own commodities index fund, since then it is the single-best performing index fund in the world in any asset class.
