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

The growing popularity of litigation finance has been fuelled by billions of dollars from hedge funds, private equity and other institutional investors. Now a crowdfunding platform due to launch in the UK early next month is hoping to spread the word — and the high returns — to private investors. In recent years, money has been pouring into litigation finance businesses, which provide upfront funding for claimants who cannot afford to fight legal disputes in return for a share of any settlement or damages.

Following the decision of the Court of Appeal in its judgment of 2nd March 2018 in the case of Property Alliance Group Limited (PAGS) v The Royal Bank of Scotland plc (RBS), any UK Bank that was guilty of LIBOR manipulation will be staring anxiously over its shoulder for the claims that will now proceed against them.
A NEW crowdfunding platform has launched in the UK that enables investors to fund litigation cases.
AxiaFunder went live earlier this month and has already fully funded its first case, a professional negligence dispute that was looking to raise £12,720. If the case wins, the expected return for investors is 60 per cent per year.
