Buffett never disclosed Simpson’s subsequent results “because his performance made mine look bad,” he joked in a shareholder letter in 2010. “Who wants that?”

In numerous investor letters and Berkshire meetings, the Berkshire CEO praised Simpson’s abilities. Buffett even suggested that if he and his right-hand man, Charlie Munger, died suddenly, the Geico executive would take over Berkshire’s portfolio.

Here are Buffett’s eight best Simpson comments, lightly edited and condensed for clarity:

Lou possesses a unique combination of temperamental and intellectual characteristics that result in exceptional long-term investment performance. He has generated returns that are by far the best in the insurance industry despite operating with below-average risk.” (1984)

“It’s a little awkward for me, the fellow in charge of investments at Berkshire Hathaway, to chronicle this.”

Lou’s performance at Geico… These are not only fantastic figures, but they have also been achieved properly. Lou has consistently invested in same undervalued stocks that, individually, were unlikely to result in a permanent loss and, collectively, were risk-free.” (1986)

“Lou has never been one to flaunt his abilities.” But I’ll say it anyway: Lou is one of the all-time greats in the investment world.
