During Berkshire Hathaway ‘s (NYSE: BRK-A) (NYSE: BRK-B) 2018 annual shareholder meeting, Warren Buffett admitted that not investing in Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) and Google — now Alphabet (NASDAQ: GOOGL) (NASDAQ: GOOG) — was a mistake. It seems Berkshire Hathaway doesn’t want to repeat that mistake — even less so when there’s an opportunity in India, one of the world’s fastest-growing economies.

Berkshire Hathaway has invested in India-based fintech start-up Paytm, its first direct investment in the nation, according to The Economic Times (ET). While the details aren’t out yet, here’s what we do know as of this writing: The deal is led by Todd Combs, one of the two investment managers responsible for several of Berkshire’s recent stock investments , and Combs is joining the board of Paytm’s parent One97 Communications.
