SwissRe repays BRK
« on: February 18, 2011, 09:01:33 PM »
Looks like BRK made about 37% annualized gains including gains in swiss frank vs us dollar. Also, Swiss Re combined ratio came in at 93.9% which is pretty good.

Unless I'm mistaken, BRK actually made even more than 37% because of the inherent leverage of its float. (let me know if I'm missing something here)

How much will Buffett make from those equity index puts?

My guess - 100 percent.
