Get Started

What are the benefits of investing in litigation finance assets?

Historical Performance
Resolved case investments have generated a median 47% net annualized return to investors as of August 31, 2020.
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.
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 August 31, 2020. 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
