Berkshire Hathaway Dumps Visa & MasterCard, Goes for Nubank

16 February 2022

    Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway dumped a portion of its Visa and Mastercard holdings and increased exposure in Nubank - the largest fintech bank in Brazil that has also been popular among cryptocurrency investors.


    In a securities filing late Monday, the investment giant disclosed that it had purchased $1 billion worth of Nubank Class A stock in Q4/2021, while selling $1.8 billion and $1.3 billion worth of Visa and Mastercard stock, respectively - a potential signal of the company’s refocus from credit companies to their fintech rivals.
