Jim Rogers: How to Be a Great Investor

If you want to become a master at something you must learn from the wisdom of others. You can do this by reading books and listening to interviews with elder investors like Jim Rogers, George Soros, Warren Buffett, Stanley Druckenmiller and Ray Dalio. Unfortunately, there are few investing pundits still making the media rounds who are in their 60s and 70s. However, it is critical to learn from senior investors because they’ve experienced market and economic conditions that most professionals today couldn’t even imagine.

Jim Rogers (born October 19, 1942) is an American investor and financial commentator based in Singapore. Rogers is the Chairman of Beeland Interests, Inc. He was the co-founder of the Quantum Fund and Soros Fund Management. He was also the creator of the Rogers International Commodities Index (RICI).

In 1970, Rogers joined investment bank Arnhold and S. Bleichroder, where he worked with George Soros.

In 1973, Soros and Rogers both left and founded the Quantum Fund. From 1970 to 1980, the portfolio gained 4200% while the S&P advanced about 47%. The Quantum Fund was one of the first truly global funds.
