How to Invest with AxiaFunder

We guide you through the process from registration to investment on the AxiaFunder platform.

How litigation funding works


1
Register

Complete our simple registration process: click on Find out more - you then need to complete an Investor Readiness process and upload some Identity documents which are necessary to comply with anti-money laundering requirements.

2
Investor Approval

For legal reasons AxiaFunder needs to review your profile before granting access to the case details; we’ll aim to do this within 30 minutes and you will receive an email notification once this is complete.

3
Non-Disclosure Agreement

Review and agree to a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) for the case. This is required because the information related to a case is typically sensitive for both the claimant and the defendant.

4
Information Access

Once you and AxiaFunder have digitally agreed to the NDA, you will have access to the details of the case including many of the relevant case legal documents. You will also be provided with an offer document for your review.

5
Investing

You can invest in the case, either directly or via your IF ISA account, by clicking on the relevant button. If investing directly, you will be asked to fund your investment either by bank transfer or card.

6
Investment Conclusion

Over the duration of a case there will be updates every quarter. At maturity of the investment, if a case is resolved successfully there will be a deposit of principal and interest to your AxiaFunder wallet. You can withdraw cash from your AxiaFunder wallet at any time. If the case is unsuccessful you will likely incur a significant loss of up to your entire investment. For full explanation of potential risks please refer to risk section.

Partially guaranteed funding


1
Although AxiaFunder is reliant on the crowd to fund each case, we have entered an arrangement with another Partner company that can guarantee funding for a minimum agreed number of cases, if those cases aren't fully funded on the platform before the offer deadline.
2
Before a case goes on the platform, the Partner reviews it and confirms how much of it (if any) they will commit to funding if Axia's investors don't take up the full offer. This helps provide more certainty for claimants that funds will be available to support their litigation.
3
All approved cases are first offered to AxiaFunder's investors. If the case is not fully funded, the deficit is then funded by the Partner, provided that their committed capital is sufficient to fund the deficit completely. (Of course, an excessively large deficit results in the offer being cancelled).
AxiaFunder's data evaluation for case assessment is powered by Solomonic litigation analytics

How to Suffer Loss

The following blog post was written by Bruce Packard CFA, an independent value investor and personal friend of Cormac Leech, CEO of AxiaFunder.

“The idea of litigation finance is simple, legal cases cost money and sometimes a claimant is unable to afford to fight a case; so in exchange for money up front, they share the return of any settlement winnings paid out in the future. Burford Capital does this very successfully – but Cormac is trying to allow retail investors to fund smaller cases."
