Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation would be nice to track. I would think Buffett has a lot
of input.

Melinda Gates, interview in Fortune Magazine,mentioned how the foundation will review their investment portfolio. They are taking some of the criticisms of the social consciousness of their investments seriously. Their agenda may not be aligned with someone who wants to earn the highest returns from stocks, especially if it prevents cooperative efforts with their philantropic causes.

Just add Cascade Investments operated by Michael Larson. If Larson meets the qualifications.

Larson was specifically asked to be very conservative and cautious in managing the Foundation, so there is a measure of safety in his picks that is very reassuring.
