Trip Rodgers has learned the ins and outs of institutional investing through two decades of experience, both as a research analyst and as a portfolio manager. Yet, he argues the most valuable lessons he learned trace back to his upbringing around the sport of wrestling. Rodgers grew up in the rural farming town of Blackwell, Oklahoma. He started wrestling in the second grade and ultimately was recruited to wrestle for Cornell University, where he was a three-year starter for the school's prestigious Division I wrestling team.
Following his athletic career and schooling, he worked as a research associate for two regional investment banks and then as a lead research analyst in New York City for a global bulge bracket bank. He became a CFA charter holder in 2001.
In 2004, he accepted a position at a major hedge fund and transitioned into the role of Portfolio Manager, where he focused on the materials and industrial sectors. Rodgers left that firm in 2014 and has most recently helped grow his wife's yoga business (We Yogis) to multiple locations in Dallas. He and his wife are blessed with three children.
