Beeland Interests, Inc. is
the owner and sponsor of
the Rogers International Commodity Index®
(also known as the RICI®).

The RICI® is a composite, USD based, total return index, designed by James B. Rogers, Jr. in the late 1990s. The index was designed to meet the need for consistent investing in a broad-based international vehicle; it represents the value of a basket of commodities consumed in the global economy, ranging from agricultural to energy to metals products. The value of this basket is tracked via futures contracts on exchange-traded physical commodities, comprised of 38 commodities futures contracts quoted in four different currencies, listed on 10 exchanges in four countries. RICI® aims to be an effective measure of the price action of raw materials not just in the United States but also around the world. Indeed, the index’s weights attempt to balance consumption patterns worldwide (in developed and developing economies) and specific contract liquidity. The index is designed to offer stability, partly because it is broadly based and consistent in composition, and to meet a need in the financial spectrum currently not effectively covered.

In 1990-1992, Rogers fulfilled his lifelong dream: traveling over 100,000 miles across six continents, a feat that landed him in the Guinness Book of World Records.  As a private investor, he constantly analyzed the countries through which he traveled for investment ideas.  He chronicled his one-of-a-kind journey in Investment Biker: On the Road with Jim Rogers.  Jim also embarked on a Millennium Adventure.  He traveled for 1101 days on his round-the-world, Guinness World Record journey from 1999 to 2002.  Passing through 116 countries, he covered more than 245,000 kilometers, which he recounted in his book Adventure Capitalist: The Ultimate Road Trip.  His book, Hot Commodities: How Anyone Can Invest Profitably In The World’s Best Market, was published in 2004.  His next book A Bull in China describes his experiences in China as well as the changes and opportunities there. He followed that book with A Gift to My Children. His latest book is Street Smarts: Adventures on the Road and in the Markets.
