Investing maven, Jim Rogers, is a really, really huge fan of China. So much so that he packed his bags in 2007 and made his way over the Singapore to be where all the action is. He once said in an interview that he thinks “the 21st century is going to be the century of Asia, of China. If I’m right about the future, you are going to have a better life [if you move there], better opportunities, and better everything going where the action is, where the assets are.”
He recently revealed just how strong his support for Asia was by making a public comment on welcoming Chinese husbands for his daughters. Apparently, a Chinese student who heard Rogers speak told the investor that he will do his best to meet Rogers’ requirements for a son-in-law — intelligent, older than his daughters, possess a wide variety of experience, and a great career. Rogers then jokingly gave his business card to the student.
Nice to know that Rogers is doing his part to help the single bachelor problem in China, but it’ll be a long time before he’ll have to fend off suitors; his two daughters are currently only nine and four.
