But the desire to target "high-returning investments" in the current environment is a top priority, he said. Ackamn also highlighted Berkshire's $130 billion in cash, which he said is a "very large number relative to the liquidity available" in buying one stock at a time.Pershing's Cash Allocation Strategy Buffett deserves credit for building a "high-quality" portfolio that also expanded operating margins, especially at Burlington Northern, Berkshire's largest industrial asset, Israel also said on the conference call.The insurance business float also grew 5% last year to $130 billion which is "really incredible at the scale that Berkshire is dealing with," he said. At the end of the day, Pershing feels it is better than Buffett and Charlie Munger at allocating cash toward investments that are consistent with its own objectives.Related Links:Bill Ackman Makes Pitch To Elon Musk For New HQ, Channels Howard HughesQ1 13F Roundup: How Buffett, Einhorn, Ackman And Others Adjusted Their PortfoliosSee more from Benzinga * Buffett's Airline Exit Offers 'No Hope' In Short-Term, Cramer Says * Charlie Munger Says Berkshire Playing It Safe During Coronavirus; Outcome Of Crisis Could Be 'A Different Kind Of Mess'(C) 2020 Benzinga.com.
