Billionaire investor Warren Buffett, the co-founder, chairman, and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, has expressed interest in the Indian market, citing it as a land of “unexplored” opportunities. His remarks came during Berkshire’s annual meeting on Friday, May 3rd, in response to a question posed by Rajeev Agarwal of DoorDarshi Advisors, a US-based hedge fund that invests in Indian equities.

Warren Buffett acknowledged the potential of India, the world’s fifth-largest economy, stating, “I am sure there are loads of opportunities in countries like India.

However, he also highlighted the need for insights and contacts that could facilitate transactions that Berkshire Hathaway would like to participate in. He suggested that a more energetic management at Berkshire could pursue these opportunities.

At 93, Warren Buffett continues to lead Berkshire Hathaway with a keen eye for profitable ventures. He mentioned that Berkshire has a great reputation around the world and shared his fascinating experiences in Japan. He hinted at the possibility of exploring unattended opportunities in India in the future, stating, “There may be an unexplored or an unattended opportunity…but that may be something in the future.

During the Q&A session, Warren Buffett addressed several questions related to Berkshire Hathaway’s recent key investment decisions. He clarified that the decision to reduce their stake in Apple had nothing to do with the long-term view on the stock, and Apple would probably remain one of their largest holdings despite the recent slowdown. He also reassured shareholders about the company’s future leadership, praising Vice Chairmen Greg Abel and Ajit Jain as the right people to lead Berkshire after his departure.

Warren Buffett’s interest in India underscores the country’s potential as a lucrative market for global investors. As India continues to grow and develop, it will be interesting to see how Berkshire Hathaway and other global conglomerates navigate and tap into these ‘unexplored’ opportunities.
