Sometimes the simplest ideas really are the best. I haven't measured the vol, but it's clearly going to be less than the market.

FWIW, I was doing a presentation for a new fund for newbie-type HNWs, and I included the BRK.A Total Return for the last six years, Jan 2007-Dec 2012.

The monthly Std. Dev, and annualized std dev. were somewhat surprising, exactly equal to the MSCI World Index.

Spoiler below for those who might want to have a stab at the monthly and annualised standard deviation of monthly returns...























Monthly SD 5.61%
Annualised SD 19.42%
