Jim Rogers: If you are an Investor, all you need is a Computer



Jim Rogers: “I have to invest my money and I do. It doesn’t take too much of my time. I have an office but I’ve never been to my office. I have an office at home. My secretary needs an office but she comes to my home every day. These days if you’re an investor, all you need is a computer.” About his investing activity, he said: “I don’t trade very much. Brokers don’t particularly like me because I don’t buy and sell very often. I may own them for years. I’ve been doing this for a long time. After a few decades I hope I’ve gotten better.” - in The Wall Street Journal





Jim Rogers started trading the stock market with $600 in 1968.In 1973 he formed the Quantum Fund with the legendary investor George Soros before retiring, a multi millionaire at the age of 37.

Is there anything Jim Rogers misses about the U.S.?



Jim Rogers : “No, there’s not,” he said, adding that Singapore has everything he wants or needs. “I can get hot dogs at the American Club [in Singapore]. If you land at JFK, you land at a third-world airport, go through third-world immigration and go in a third-world taxi on a third-world highway, and stay in a third-world five-star hotel. I’m very happy we sold our house.” - in The Wall Street Journal
