Jim Rogers invests in Tiger Brokers mobile app

Tiger Brokers allows Chinese investors to buy US stocks. With registered users exceeding 1 million, annual turnover on the Tiger Brokers platform reached US$17.6 billion at the end of 2016, up 30 times from the previous year.

The three-year old Chinese online brokerage has managed to attract the attention of Jim Rogers by becoming the first Chinese financial technology start-up the Jim Rogers has ever put money into.

Tiger Brokers said in March that it had raised 100 million yuan in a series B+ round led by China Growth Capital, but did not disclose how much Rogers agreed to invest.

Asia and China is the place to be

What you think is true today will not be true in 15 years. Pick any year in history, and what everyone believed that year is no longer relevant 15 years later. In an even bigger picture than a 15-year cycle, Asia is rising whether we like it or not. 

Asia is where the money, energy, ambition, drive, and the brains are. China currently puts out something like 10 times as many engineers as America does. This may not have an immediate effect, but it will have an effect someday. In 1807, the smart people moved to London. In 1907, the smart people moved to New York. Well in my view, the 21st century is the century of Asia.
