At AxiaFunder we also believe that litigation funding can be socially useful by helping to ensure that everyone has access to justice - creating a more inclusive society. The UK Ministry of Justice (Jackson 2011) has endorsed this view.

As with all types of investment, we recommend that investors consider litigation funding with a full understanding of the risks involved and as part of a diversified portfolio. You can read about the risks here.
