The Warren Buffett Series

The life story of one of the most successful investors in the world

by Vicky Ng, Insights Analyst

Warren Buffett is considered the greatest investor of all time by many experts. His journey through life is nothing short of legendary — from selling gum for profit at the age of 5, to investing in stocks for the first time at the age of 11, to his current net worth of some $84 billion at age 87.

We partnered with Visual Capitalist to produce a series of infographics that illustrate the highlights of Buffett’s life.

This is part one of a five-part biographical series, with new parts released each month.

Warren Buffet, we salute you!
