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.
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.

The return for investors is estimated to be between 1.85x and 2.51x capital.
