- Jim Pattison, who has a reported net worth of $5.9 billion, has been called “Canada’s Warren Buffett.”
- Like Buffett, Pattison is the third-richest person in his country, is relatively frugal, and donates heavily to philanthropy.
- But Pattison can also be a little lavish — he owns a $25 million yacht and a fleet of jets.
Known as “Canada’s Warren Buffett,” Pattison, 90, has a net worth of $5.9 billion, according to Forbes. It may not even graze Buffett’s $8o billion net worth, but it ranks him as the third-richest man in Canada — equivalent to Buffett’s seat as the third-richest man in America.
Also like Buffett, Pattinson is relatively frugal. Born during the Great Depression, he had humble beginnings that stuck with him even as he created and developed a giant conglomerate, The Jim Pattison Group, of 200-plus companies worth more than $7 billion today. He also donates heavily to philanthropy.
