Warren Buffet wants Jimmy Buffett to write him into his will

Warren Buffet wants Jimmy Buffett to write him into his will

The 92-year-old billionaire has made his fortune through decades of investing, but Warren Buffett is still looking to make a quick buck.

He may be one of the richest men in the world, but Warren Buffett wants to be written in singer-songwriter and businessman Jimmy Buffett’s will.

The pair have been friends for decades with the musician even investing in Buffett’s multi-billion-dollar conglomerate, Berkshire Hathaway.

Despite this, the billionaire still joked about being remembered in his friend’s will after he passes away (cheery!).

Given how notoriously frugal Buffett is, it is unsurprising that he would make such a joke.

The 92-year-old has become the world’s fifth richest man after carefully investing over several decades, building his own investment firm and forgoing a lavish billionaire lifestyle.

In fact, Buffett has remained in the same Nebraska home since the 1950s – which he purchased for a modest $31,5000 (£25k).

Even adjusted for inflation, he would have still only paid $250,000 (£201k) which is not much given his staggering fortune which is thought to be $106 billion ($85.4b).

Much like everything else he touches, the five-bedroom home turned out to be a great investment for the money magnate and is worth over $1.2m (£970k) today.

Smart decisions like this have allowed Buffett to own brands like Fruit of the Loom, Dairy Queen and Duracell.

However, this hasn’t stopped the multi-billionaire from looking for additional streams of income – no matter how morbid.

The money magnate made the joke about his friend in a recent interview.

He made the comment about his friend and American musician, Jimmy Buffett, after Forbes interviewed the singer-songwriter about how he’d amassed his own fortune.

As well as gaining royalties from his music, the Hey Good Lookin’ singer has made over $1 billion dollars (£806m) from investments and his own firm, Margaritaville.

The company own more than 30 vacation resorts and cruise lines, as well as 150 restaurants which serve cocktails inspired by his back catalogue of music.

Having made his fortune the Come Monday musician spends his golden years jetting around the Caribbean and the Bahamas.

Whilst most of us would want to relax with our friends as we reach retirement age, Buffett isn’t showing any signs of slowing down.

It’s just as well given that Warren Buffett has already been eyeing the musician’s vast empire.

He jokingly told Forbes: “I wish there were more Jimmy Buffetts, but there aren’t….Tell Jimmy to keep me in his will!”

Whilst the comment was tongue-in-cheek, you can’t help thinking why Buffett needs another billion given that he already has $106 billion in the bank.
