MOHNISH PABRAI

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.

In this article, we will talk about the top five holdings in terms of value that Dalal Street has held at the end of the year.

The first position is represented by General Motors Company (NYSE:GM). The fund disclosed a $137.09 million stake held in the form of 5.93 million warrants that expire in 2019.
