In this episode, Preston and Stig talk to world renown investor, Jim Rogers. Rogers rose to a legendary status in the 1970’s when he obtained a 4200% return during his ten-year ownership of the Quantum Fund. During this same period of time, the market only advanced 47%. After Roger’s time at the Quantum Fund, he became a professor at Columbia Business School. In 1998, Jim formed the Rogers International Commodity Index at a time when commodities were severely depressed. During the following decade, his decision to create the index proved extremely lucrative.
In addition to being an investment titan, Rogers is also a Guinness Book Record holder for traveling around the world on his motorcycle. He is the author of numerous best-selling investment books.

- Jim Rogers’ positions in the market
- Why he is holding gold, but does not add to his position.
