About the Speaker
Jim Rogers started in business at the age of five by selling peanuts and by picking up empty bottles that fans left behind at baseball games. He got his first job on Wall Street, at Dominick & Dominick, after graduating with a bachelor's degree in History from Yale University in 1964. Rogers then acquired a second BA degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from Balliol College, Oxford University in 1966. In 1973, Rogers co-founded theQuantum Fund with George Soros. During the following 10 years, the portfolio gained 4200% while the S&P advanced about 47%. The Quantum Fund was one of the first truly international funds.
Rogers has been a guest professor of finance at the Columbia Business School and was the moderator of WCBS' The Dreyfus Roundtable and FNN's The Profit Motive with Jim Rogers. Rogers is also regular guest on Fox News' Cavuto on Business and other financial TV shows.
In 1998, Rogers founded the Rogers International Commodity Index. In 2007, the index and its three sub-indices were linked to exchange-traded notes under the banner ELEMENTS. The notes track the total return of the indices as an accessible way to invest in the index.
In December 2007, Rogers moved to Singapore from New York City as he wanted to be “close” to the actions. In February 2011 Rogers announced that he has started a new index fund which focuses on "the top companies in agriculture, mining, metals and energy sectors as well as those in the alternative energy space including solar, wind and hydro." The index is called The Rogers Global Resources Equity Index and according to Rogers, only the best and most liquid companies go into the index.
