In its latest 13F, Dalal Street, managed by Mohnish Pabrai, disclosed its holdings for the fourth quarter of 2013. The value of the fund’s equity portfolio amounted to $543.92 million, down from $459.68 million in the third quarter.
Pabrai is an entrepreneur who later switched to money management, and his best investment ever was the $650,100 he paid for lunch with Warren Buffett. He doesn’t hide the fact that he is trying to monkey Warren Buffett’s investment style. He even set up the fee structure of his hedge fund the same way Warren Buffett did more than 50 years ago. He doesn’t charge any management fees and takes 25% of returns that are greater than a 6% threshold.
