As per a HT report, Buffett has termed Mr. Ajit Jain as a person whose intelligence to rate most risks in the right manner, the naturalness to forget about those that cannot be evaluated, the fearlessness to script huge policies and the way to reject risks with discipline when the premium is not relevant is really very remarkable.
