Warren Buffett

Legendary investor Warren Buffett struck a cautious tone at the hotly anticipated Annual General Meeting (AGM) of his investment vehicle Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A). Other than imploring investors to “buy America”, Buffett isn’t excited by any opportunities in the market right now, despite the sell-off. In fact, the veteran investor has sold all his airline stocks and has increased his cash position to an incredible $130 billion.

Using the latest regulatory filings, we have looked at Berkshire Hathaway’s top 10 holdings and found the UK-based funds with similar stocks. While Berkshire is listed as a company, it operates as a “best ideas” fund of more than 50 names and has a market cap of nearly $500 billion. We have looked at UK funds rated by Morningstar Analysts as Neutral and above where the stock accounts for more than 3% of the fund's assets.
