Warren Buffet Net Worth By Age


Warren Buffet is the most studied investor on the planet. And for good reason too. He is the most successful investor to ever live. There are countless books and articles written about him. One particular article I came across recently from MarketWatch was fascinated me. It contained information on the wealth of Warren Buffet at different ages.

Without further ado, here is Warren Buffet’s net worth at different ages


  • Age 14 : $5,000
  • Age 15 : $6,000
  • Age 19 : $10,000
  • Age 21 : $20,000
  • Age 26 : $140,000
  • Age 30 : $1,000,000
  • Age 32 : $1,400,000
  • Age 33 : $2,400,000
  • Age 34 : $3,400,000
  • Age 35 : $7,000,000
  • Age 36 : $8,000,000
  • Age 37 : $10,000,000
  • Age 39 : $25,000,000
  • Age 43 : $34,000,000
  • Age 44 : $19,000,000
  • Age 47 : $67,000,000
  • Age 52 : $376,000,000
  • Age 53 : $620,000,000
  • Age 56 : $1,400,000,000
  • Age 58 : $2,300,000,000
  • Age 59 : $3,800,000,000
  • Age 66 : $17,000,000,000
  • Age 72 : $36,000,000,000
  • Age 83 : $58,500,000,000

From the above, it can be seen why Buffet is considered the best investor of all time. He has accumulated vast sums of wealth over time. But what is the most noticeable is how he used the power of compounding over time.



Looking at the above, Buffett only became a billionaire well into his 50’s. And if he had stopped investing or had passed on by the time he was 60, I doubt most people would have heard of him. The only reason Buffett is Buffett is because of his longevity. He has made most of his money after he turned 70. Taking it further , it could be seen that Buffett has added more to his net worth in the past 10 years than in all go his 70 previous years combined. Astounding!

The history of Buffett’s net worth over time should be a lesson to us all. Initially the investment gains we make will be really small. But by perseverance, compounding and longevity, you will see the value of your investments explode. So if you are at the beginning of your investment journey, do not be put off by small gains. Instead, head the lessons of Buffett and you too can be successful over time.
