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."

Litigation Crowdfunding: Socially Inclusive or Ambulance Chasing?
Litigation funding - where third-party financing is used to pay for legal action - has been around for many years now. Although successfully applied to a certain segment of the legal market, until now it has generally been restricted to hedge funds and private equity firms generating attractive returns from large cases. That seems to be about to change with potentially positive implications for social inclusion.

Litigation finance industry opens up to private investors

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.

What are the risks facing an investor in litigation funding?
For litigation funders, adverse cost risk, whilst real, is an identifiable and manageable risk which is extremely low and should not, of itself, deter those investors who are interested in seeking the projected returns that this type of investment may be able to offer, as part of a balanced portfolio of investments.

The Best Kept Secret in Investing?
Having experienced a significant broad-based rally in equity and property markets over the last 9 years, arguably now is a good time for eligible investors to look to diversify their exposure across other asset classes - ideally those with little or no correlation with traditional risk markets. In this regard, litigation funding seems like an attractive option although not without its own specific risks.
