A thought.....

AFAIK Li Lu does not "do" financials. Retail, Industry.... that's his thing.

Could it be that Berkshire picked Combs because he has a circle of competence that complements that of Li Lu ?

also important to note is that Todd is not a buy n hold investor. Partly because of small size of his portfolio and partly times have changed and Buffett realizes that.
