Jim Rogers
Worldwide Investor and Author


Jim Rogers, a native of Demopolis, Alabama, is an author, financial commentator and successful international investor.  He has been frequently featured in Time, The Washington Post, The New York Times, Barron’s, Forbes, Fortune, The Wall Street Journal, The Financial Times, The Business Times, The Straits Times and many media outlets worldwide.  He has also appeared as a regular commentator and columnist in various media and has been a visiting professor at Columbia University.

After attending Yale and Oxford University, Rogers co-founded the Quantum Fund, a global-investment partnership.  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.  Continuing to manage his own portfolio, Rogers kept busy serving as a 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 1990-1992, Rogers fulfilled his lifelong dream: traveling over 100,000 miles across six continents, a feat that landed him in the Guinness Book of World Records.  As a private investor, he constantly analyzed 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 also embarked on a Millennium Adventure.  He traveled for 1101 days on his round-the-world, Guinness World Record journey from 1999 to 2002.  Passing through 116 countries, he covered more than 245,000 kilometers, which he recounted in his book Adventure Capitalist: The Ultimate Road Trip.  His book, Hot Commodities: How Anyone Can Invest Profitably In The World's Best Market, was published in 2004.  His next book A Bull in China describes his experiences in China as well as the changes and opportunities there. He followed that book with A Gift to My Children. His latest book is Street Smarts: Adventures on the Road and in the Markets.
