Warren Buffet has been a strong proponent for passive investing. Buffett has famously said that the best investment option for most Americans is simple, low-cost index funds. Buffett has mentioned S&P 500 index funds, in particular, saying that such an investment is a bet on American business, which should perform quite well over time. Invariably this leads to some bafflement, because Buffett is one of the most highly regarded stock pickers of all time, with Berkshire Hathaway's stock portfolio significantly outperforming the S&P 500 index over the years.

However, recently Buffet took his own advice and added two ETFs to the Berkshire Hathway portfolio. Berkshire added to the Vanguard S&P 500 ETF, ticker VOO, and SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust, known as SPY, in the final quarter of 2019, according to a regulatory filing. The relatively small investments, which totaled US$25 million across both funds, are Berkshire’s only publicly disclosed ETF holdings in its most recent quarterly 13F filing. Less than 1% of Berkshire’s liquid equity portfolio is invested in index funds.
