Burford Capital investment data
This chart provides individual investment detail about Burford’s core litigation finance and asset recovery investments, as those terms are defined in Burford’s 2018 annual report, which also contains the context for the chart. The chart should not be relied upon separately from the annual report. Burford disclaims any obligation to update this chart, although has expressed an intention to do so at the time of its release of its 2019 interim results. “Commit” below means Burford’s commitment to an investment; “Deploy” means Burford’s cash investment; “Recover” means Burford’s recovery upon partial realization or investment conclusion; “ROIC” means return on invested capital; and “IRR” means internal rate of return, all as further used and defined in Burford’s annual report. Weighted average duration is computed consistently with Burford’s historical practice using the actual timing of cash flows; for some fund-only investments, simple duration is provided instead and is based on investment life. In addition, ROIC and IRR on partially concluded investments have been provided for balance sheet investments consistent with Burford’s historical practice but have not been provided for partially concluded fund-only investments.
