“Berkshire Hathaway could not have been built to its present status without Charlie’s inspiration, wisdom, and participation,” Buffett said in a heartfelt statement.

Beyond his role as Berkshire’s vice chairman, Munger wore many hats throughout his illustrious career. He was not only a real estate attorney but also served as the chairman and publisher of the Daily Journal Corp.

Additionally, Munger contributed as a board member of Costco, showcasing his diverse interests and expertise. His philanthropic endeavors and architectural pursuits further underscored his multifaceted legacy.

As of early 2023, Munger’s fortune was estimated at a staggering $2.3 billion, a testament to his financial acumen and strategic investments.

Munger’s influence extended beyond Berkshire Hathaway, as he held the positions of chairman and CEO at Wesco Financial from 1984 to 2011. Berkshire eventually acquired the remaining shares of Wesco Financial, solidifying Munger’s impact on the insurance and investment industry.

Buffett credited Munger with reshaping his investment philosophy. Munger’s insights prompted a shift from investing in troubled companies at low prices to a focus on higher-quality, albeit underpriced, entities.
