After he cofounded the Quantum Fund with George Soros in 1970, the fund surged by 4,200% over the next decade, while the Standard & Poor’s index rose by 47%. Rogers has worked as a professor of finance at Columbia University, columnist, author, and a contrarian investor. In the early 1990s he traveled 65,000 miles through six continents on a BMW motorcycle and ended up with a portfolio of investments in some of the world’s most unexpected markets.
