AxiaFunder launches secondary market

AxiaFunder, the UK-based crowdfunding litigation funder, has launched an automated Secondary Market operating as a Bulletin Board, offering investors secondary trading functionality.

This facility will provide sellers with the potential to reduce their minimum holding periods on investments which would otherwise typically take two to three years to reach an exit. It will also help sellers to manage liquidity and risk. Buyers will be able to access cases that are already funded – enabling increased portfolio diversification.

For claimants, AxiaFunder expects that the Secondary Market will in time become more liquid, which should tend to increase the availability of litigation funding while also lowering its cost.

AxiaFunder plans to carefully supervise the new Secondary Market, noting the importance of ensuring equal disclosure of information to buyers and sellers. It will not allow investors to trade case investments close to key case events such as, for example, a mediation process or court hearing. Confidentiality of case information will be protected through the execution of non-disclosure agreements by all prospective investors.

Further details on the Secondary Market.

AxiaFunder to switch to a ‘tax efficient’ partnership model

AxiaFunder, the UK-based crowdfunding litigation funder, is set to switch to a ‘tax efficient’ partnership model. The platform, which has been operating with an equity model of offering shares to investors in a company set up for cases, will switch to a limited partnership model in a few weeks. Founder and chief executive Cormac Leech said the partnership structure is more tax efficient, as the limited partnership company does not pay tax but rather passes all the earnings on to the investors who pay the tax.
