Jim Rogers's 2022 biography

Jim Rogers’s Background / History

James Beeland Rogers Junior (known as Jim Rogers) was born on the 19th of October 1942. Born in Baltimore, his family moved to Demopolis in Alabama whilst he was still a child. He showed early entrepreneurial spirit, making money by collecting empty bottles and selling peanuts at baseball games. A capable student, Rogers attended Yale University, completing his bachelors degree in history in 1964. He went on to study for a bachelors degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Oxford University, completing his education in 1966.

Career

After his graduation from Oxford, Rogers began working at Dominick & Dominick, a financial services institution on Wall Street. He moved to Arnhold and S. Bleichroder (an investment bank) in 1970. Whilst working for the bank he met George Soros and soon the two colleagues became interested in starting up a project of their own. In 1973, they founded Quantum Fund, a private hedge fund provider. The business was very successful, allowing Rogers to take a break from work in 1980.

Awards, Accolades, Achievements & Honours

During this time away from work, Rogers explored numerous countries around the world, travelling mainly by motorbike. Having enjoyed his expedition, he later spent two years in the early nineties travelling the globe by motorbike once again. Due to the distance Rogers covered (over 100,000 miles) and the number of countries and continents covered, he became a holder of a Guinness World Record.

Despite having travelled extensively by motorbike, Rogers decided to travel again, and spent the years between 1992 and 2002 exploring once again, this time travelling by car and accompanied by his wife. The couple clocked up 152,000 miles, gaining another place in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Rogers adventures taught him a lot and served as inspiration for his books Investment Biker: Around the World with Jim Rogers and Adventure Capitalist: The Ultimate Road Trip.
