Investor Benefits of a Litigation Portfolio

A Diversified Investment

The litigation portfolio of investments in the world’s leading litigation law firms spread the risk across a variety of legal cases and thousands of claimants such as mass torts and individual cases.

A Stable Industry With Non-Correlated Returns

Litigation investments and returns derived from different market fundamentals causing them to be independent of market fluctuations, providing stability and consistency even during economic downturns. Companies still need representation in recessions and market instability does not affect whether or not a claimant wins a case and is given an award.

Graph to the left shows dramatic volatility present in common investment and non-correlation nature of legal services.

Achieve Portfolio Resilience

With most investors over-allocated in real estate and public equities (Stocks), litigation funding gives your portfolio a truly diversified investment with resilience in market downturns

A Positive Social Impact Investment

Supporting litigation cases aligns with ESG and Impact Investing by helping provide access to justice for individuals harmed by corporate misdeeds.

A low LTV ratio reflects a conservative borrowing approach, with a substantial cushion against potential valuation fluctuations, and further protects the investors principle and enhances upside.

Requiring law firms to invest their own funds along side ours demonstrates their confidence and commitment in the case, aligns their financial interests, and helps maintain a low LTV.
