The business partner of the legendary investor is dead. He died at the age of 99

“His sharp wit dazzled generations of investors. No other business partner played second fiddle better than Charlie Munger.” — writes the Wall Street Journal in its material about the death of a financial market legend.

The daily reminds that for decades Munger was not only the vice-president of Berkshire Hathaway, but also a friend and “consigliere” (loosely translated as “advisor”, a reference to the prose about the New York Italian mafia, where the person holding such a “position” was supposed to be something like advisors and managers – ed.).

Munger was famous for regularly taking the floor after Buffett at annual meetings with investors to say only: I have nothing to add.

Charlie Munger grew up in Omaha, Nebraska, a few hundred yards from where Buffett now lives. They met in 1959, when Buffett was 28 and Munger was 35. Munger at one point worked at a grocery store owned by Buffett’s grandfather.
