Agrawal highlighted Munger’s profound impact on investing, focusing on his adherence to the principle of compounding. Munger’s mantra, “The first rule of compounding is to never interrupt unnecessarily,” encapsulated his strategy of nurturing long-term investments to generate significant wealth.

At the core of Munger’s philosophy lay value investing, centered on holding onto high-quality businesses for extended periods. This allowed for the exponential growth of gains through the power of compound interest, a strategy often overlooked by many.

Munger’s emphasis on a patient approach, focusing on the intrinsic worth of assets over speculative trading, became a guiding principle. Despite financial challenges, like the $50 billion loss in Q1FY20, Munger retained a conservative outlook, prioritizing liquidity and fundamental strength.

Joining Berkshire Hathaway in 1978, Munger contributed significantly to its transformation from a modest textile company to a colossal conglomerate now valued at over $780 billion.
