This deal is peanuts for Berkshire.  He's just getting Berkshire's name out there for when one of the big 5 banks need capital.  Savvy, even in his old age :)

Maybe he's testing a new strategy: is Berkshire's name powerful enough to draw in deposits? If so, this could be an incredible new business opportunity for BRK lol
