Former Baugur chief Jon Asgeir Johannesson has re-emerged on the UK investment landscape – as an angel investor in an artisan beef burger maker.

Johannesson, who led investments in some of the UK’s biggest high street names before the financial crash, has taken a 25 per cent stake in Muddy Boots Real Foods, a family owned burger maker, stocked in Waitrose and Budgens. The investment has been made through Johannesson’s new investment vehicle, JMS Partners.
