About Warren Buffett

American business magnate, investor, and philanthropist, Warren Buffett, has a net worth of $67.8 billion in September 2016 according to Bloomberg. Unlike the other wealthy people on Forbes’ top 10 rich list, Buffett doesn’t have an oil well, retail empire, or a brain for computing to show for it – he simply have a lot of share certificates. The world’s third richest man made his fortune through companies that he believed were worth more than their market value, investing in them for the long-term. It’s certainly paid off. He joined Bill Gates’ “Giving Pledge,” aim to donate 99% of his wealth to charity. He wants the 99% spent within 10 years of his death.

The world’s third-richest man still lives in his 6,000-square-foot, five-bedroom gray stucco home that he bought in for $31,500 in 1958.
