Warren Buffett has hired a second portfolio manager, Ted Weschler, who is a hedge fund manager with an outstanding track record over the past decade. He will join Todd Combs at Berkshire Hathaway to manage part of its $60 billion portfolio.
I am quoted in a Los Angeles Times article on Ted Weschler:
Combs and Weschler appear to have different strengths, with Combs having focused more on financial stocks while Weschler appears to have favored communications-related picks. Bringing them together may work well, according to some experts.
“It seems they might complement one another,” said David Kass, a professor of finance at the University of Maryland who has studied Buffett and his work. “Weschler will bring diversification and expertise outside of the financial sector to Berkshire Hathaway.”
