- Litigation funder Burford Capital said chief investment officer Jonathan Molot had bought additional shares in the company.

Molot on Monday had purchased 250k shares at 765p per share, bringing his holding in the company to 4.34%.

The purchases add to the around 691k Burford Capital shares he bought last week.

Burford Capital shares fell sharply last week in the wake of a critical research note about the company by US group Muddy Waters, which Burford has since rebutted.
