There is a new LexShares case available for investment.

What are the benefits of investing in litigation finance assets?

Historical Performance
Resolved case investments have generated a median 56% net annualized return to investors as of December 31, 2019.
Uncorrelated Asset
Legal claims are largely uncorrelated to broader market conditions and macroeconomic activity.
Moderate Durations
On average, a civil lawsuit in the United States takes 27 months from filing to disposition.
Institutional Strategy
Harvard's endowment, sovereign wealth funds and leading institutions all have made investments in litigation finance.
Out of the thousands of prospective litigation funding opportunities reviewed by our veteran underwriting team, less than 5% are approved for investment, yielding strong results.
LexShares offers a new way to diversify your portfolio. By investing in litigation, you can potentially reduce risk of overexposure to stock market volatility and broader market conditions.
With a natural path to resolution by way of adjudication or settlement, investments in legal claims typically have shorter durations than other alternative asset classes like real estate, venture capital or private equity.
LexShares' online platform makes it possible to invest in the same asset class as some of the world’s largest and most highly regarded institutional investors—making this hard-to-access asset class available to thousands.

Past performance is not indicative of future performance. Returns are based on principal's internal reporting for offerings through the LexShares platform reaching resolution as of December 31, 2019. Results reported reflect the simple median annualized rate of return per the xirr function, net of fees and expenses. Diversification does not guarantee profits or protect against losses

What does it mean that this deal was prefunded?

Prefunding means that the LLC in which investors in this deal will participate has received initial funding to enable it to make its investment in the underlying legal claim. This initial funding includes a short-term loan from a LexShares affiliate and capital entirely or primarily from one or more investment funds managed by LexShares affiliates, which is deployed into deals prior to capacity being made available on Investors’ equity investments into this deal will serve as permanent funding that will replace the short-term portion of the LLC’s prefunding capital.

Additional information regarding prefunding and how it accomplishes a number of key objectives can be found on our FAQ page and in the Investor Document Packet for each deal, which all investors should carefully review prior to investing.
