  • investing in "Warren Buffet" Style MutualFund/ETF Vs "Berkshire Hathaway"?

Which one has Warren Buffet at the helm?
Answer #2 | 22/12 2013 19:15
One has to choose depending on the market situation and there is not any definite answer for the choice. At present it looks like mutual funds.

Two cannot be done - many of the companies in the Berkshire portfolio are 100% owned by Berkshire - thus, you cannot buy them, which means you cannot duplicate Berkshire's portfolio. Berkshire only invests in companies losing money when the portfolio managers determine that the company can be turned around and make a profit. More likely, they invest in companies that are underperforming, but not necessarily losing money, hence very little tax loss advantage. To answer the last part, if you could somehow exactly duplicate Berkshire's holdings as suggested in the three scenarios, then they would all have the same risk and none would outperform the others.

It will definitely depend on the market situation. I am no expert though I have taken gold etf from Birla Sun Life Mutual Fund and they are very good so far. I think I have made a good decision in spending my hard earned money!
