About Warren Buffett

Warren Buffet is an American business magnate, investor, and philanthropist. He has a net worth of $86 billion in January 2018. However, he is not like the other wealthy people on Forbes’ top 10 rich list. Buffett doesn’t have a brain for computing, an oil well, or a retail empire. All he has is a lot of share certificates. The world’s third richest man became wealthy through companies that he believes were worth more than their market value. Buffet invested in them for the long-term. It’s certainly paid off. He joined the “Giving Pledge” of Bill Gates and aimed to donate 99% of his wealth to charity. He wants them to spend that amount within ten years of his death.

The world’s third-richest man lives in his 6,000-square-foot, five-bedroom gray stucco home. He only bought it for $31,500 in 1958. People call him the “Oracle of Omaha” and is among the most successful investors up to this date. He is active in contributing to political causes and endorsed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Buffet publicly opposes the statements, policies, and actions of the current U.S. president, Donald Trump.

His Berkshire Hathaway owns more than 60 companies, including Geico, Duracell, and Dairy Queen.
