Markel , a niche insurance company that many investors view as a "Baby Berkshire Hathaway" due to its value investing style that mirrors many of Warren Buffett's decisions, has reported its quarterly earnings. In this video, Motley Fool financial analyst Matt Koppenheffer breaks down that earnings report, discusses leadership at the company, and tells us just how many similarities there are between Markel and Berkshire.

Warren Buffett's long track record of success has made him one of the best investors of all time. With the Buffett at the helm, Berkshire Hathaway has grown book value per share at a compounded annual rate of 19.8% for nearly 50 years! Despite an incredible historical track record, investors have to understand the key issues to watch moving forward.
