Barron's mentions Burford in an article entitled "Only a Few Funds Are Up Last Year and This Year. How They Did It." The mention states:
"In his arbitrage and special-situations bucket, now 7% of his portfolio, [Eric] Speron[, co-manager of First Foundation Total Return (FBBYX)] holds Burford Capital (BUR), a litigation finance company that recently won a multibillion-dollar suit against the government of Argentina. Such investments aren’t affected by broad market moves, helping protect the fund in downturns."
