Charlie Munger Net Worth: Charlie Munger is an American business magnate, lawyer, investor and philanthropist who has a net worth of $1.75 billion. Charlie Munger has accumulated his net worth through his investor partnership and his share holdings in many successful companies. Born Charles Thomas Munger on January 1, 1924, in Omaha, Nebraska, he is best known as Warren Buffett’s right-hand man, i.e., a Vice-Chairman of Buffett’s diversified investment corporation known as the Berkshire Hathaway Corporation. Having graduated from Harvard Law School with a Juris Doctor magna cum laud in 1948, Munger has bult up an extensive career portfolio over the years. After Munger and his family moved to California, he worked for 2 law firms: Wright & Garrett (later Musick, Peeler & Garrett) and Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP (the one he founded himself) respectively. Next, he gave up law to concentrate on investments management. He first partnered with Otis Booth in real estate development, and then with Jack Wheeler in the formation of the investment firm Wheeler, Munger, and Company. Furthermore, Charlie Munger served as chairman of Wesco Financial Corporation (from 1984 through 2011), as well as he has been the chairman of the Daily Journal Corporation and a director of Costco Wholesale Corporation. Eventually, he has acquired enough shares in the Berkshire Hathaway Corporation so that Buffett describes him as “my partner.” But a great philanthropist as he is, Charlie Munger continues to give away his valuable Berkshire Hathaway class A shares to his favorite universities and philanthropic causes. What’s more, he is the man who served as inspiration for Rolf Dobelli’s book, The Art of Thinking Clearly.
