Mr. Jim Rogers, co-founder of the Quantum Fund with George Soros. Mr. Rogers spoke with Dennis this past week from his home in Singapore and provided us with his valuable insights on the present health of the US stock markets, currencies, commodities and bonds. He was also kind enough to share some of his personal investment positions with our listeners.
Jim Rogers has been a successful hedge fund manager, investor, traveler, writer, and regular media commentator. In the 1970s Jim Rogers co-found the Quantum Fund, a private investment partnership which invested in numerous investment vehicles, including commodity futures, and experienced superior returns over 10 years, leading to his “retirement” before age 40.
