Tybourne Capital Raises Mulberry Group Stake

Eashwar Krishnan’s hedge fund Tybourne Capital Management has disclosed a position in London listed Mulberry Group (LON: MUL).  Due to trading on January 29th, Tybourne now hold 4.3% of Mulberry’s voting rights. 

Mulberry Group is not a new position, as Tybourne appeared on Mulberry Group’s list of large shareholders with a 1.08% stake back in November of 2013.  Tybourne have clearly been out buying more shares since then.
