Berkshire Hathaway's (NYSE:BRK-B) incredibly successful model is one that, surprisingly, isn't copied as often as one would think, given its success. However, a few companies out there are following in the footsteps of Warren Buffett, and in this segment from Friday's Where the Money Is, one WTMI listener sends in a question, asking which of the "Baby Berkshires" stand to prosper the most from here.
Motley Fool financial analysts Matt Koppenheffer and David Hanson take a look at Markel (NYSE:MKL), Alleghany Corp (NYSE:Y) and Leucadia National (NYSE:JEF), and discuss which of the three are truly Berkshire-type businesses, which stand to profit the most in a rising interest rates environment, and which has shown the best growth from acquisitions and investments.
