Video: Jim Rogers, CEO Rogers Holdings @ Thompson Reuters investments symposium
Posted by jdavis on December 8, 2010
I am very much looking forward to annual reviews with clients, starting this month and continuing through February.
As I noted previously, I am sure you do not wish me to sound like a broken record. So, for your viewing pleasure (as there's nothing on the box these days other than Simon, Bruce and Ant&Dec (!), I am pleased to present to you Jim Rogers, as interviewed yesterday by Thompson Reuters.
Jim Rogers interview There are 5 videos of around 10 minutes each.
Some will recall I have quoted Jim Rogers previously and he is someone for whom I have utmost respect.
He was a founding partner in the fabulously successful Quantum Fund, along with a certain George Soros.
I thought about highlighting the best parts to watch but they're all brilliant.
If anything, please note that in Video #5 they focus on UK.
Can you see where he and I disagree? I can’t.
I particularly like the bits about the countries that told the banks where to go and are now successes and governments should slash their spending .
I would point out that he has his own agenda - very long term investing. He is so disappointed with the West he moved lock stock and barrel to SE Asia a few years ago. Famously, he said he wanted his daughter (probably aged about 7 now) to grow up speaking Mandarin fluently. She has a Chinese nanny.
I might just refer to Mr Rogers when we meet over the next weeks.
