Billionaire Warren Buffett wants to do more business in the United Kingdom and Europe regardless of how Brexit turns out.
The Berkshire Hathaway Inc Chairman and Chief Executive Officer said he would "love to put more money in the UK" despite uncertainty over whether and how Britain will leave the European Union.
"I would like to see Berkshire Hathaway better known in the UK and Europe ... I would hope they would think of Berkshire more often when businesses are for sale," Buffett said at his annual shareholders' meeting in Omaha, Nebraska. "We're hoping for a deal in the UK and or in Europe no matter how Brexit comes out."
"I have the feeling it was a mistake to vote to leave," Buffett added, but said, "it doesn't destroy my appetite in the least for making a very large acquisition in the UK."
"It strikes me as a horrible problem," Berkshire Vice Chairman Charlie Munger added.
The endorsement by one of the world's most revered investors comes during a period of tremendous uncertainty about the state of the European economy as well as Britain's status within the region's governing bloc.
Britain voted to leave the European Union three years ago in what is known as "Brexit," but Prime Minister Theresa May has failed to secure a deal that satisfied parliament.
Buffett, meanwhile, has been eagerly looking for big deals where h e could make better use of his company's $114.2 billion cash hoard. He now appears even more willing to venture beyond the United States, where he is best known, for deals.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
