Charlie Munger, the influential vice chairman of Berkshire Hathaway and Warren Buffett’s longtime collaborator, passed away at 99 in a California hospital, just over a month before his 100th birthday.
Berkshire Hathaway expressed Munger’s indispensable role in its success. Despite using a wheelchair, Munger remained mentally sharp and contributed to major decisions. His partnership with Buffett transformed Berkshire from a textile mill to a conglomerate with a notable stock portfolio.
Munger’s wisdom, humor, and contrarian perspective will be missed, leaving an irreplaceable void. His impact on Buffett’s decision-making and Berkshire’s trajectory is a legacy celebrated by investors worldwide.
