A SHARIA COMPLIANT LITIGATION FUND ENHANCED BY lawtech

VWM Capital brings you Insaaf Litigation Fund, the first Sharia-compliant litigation fund, using lawtech to make smarter funding decisions and broaden access to justice.

WHY INVEST IN INSAAF
LITIGATION FUND?

WE USE LAWTECH TO MAKE SMARTER FUNDING DECISIONS

Your investment funds only cases with the highest probability of success. Our case screening technology automates and improves preselection, before independent litigation experts assess each case.

We target double digit annual returns

To date, our first fund has achieved double digit annual returns, thanks to a combination of our use of lawtech and our strategic focus on a high volume of lower sum cases.

WE FUND CASES WITH A SOCIAL IMPACT

Your investment will have a true social impact, giving more people access to justice. Our lawtech-backed approach means we can provide fast-tracked funding for 100s of lower-figure cases every week.

WE’RE THE FIRST SHARIA-COMPLIANT LITIGATION FUND

Our certified Sharia-compliant litigation fund is the first of its kind, giving you access to a uniquely attractive asset class that is relatively insulated from market volatility.

Certified by leading Sharia advisors

We’ve partnered with Amanah Advisors to structure our litigation fund so it’s Sharia compliant.

Amanah Advisors are an independent, globally recognised Sharia advisory firm. They oversee compliance, providing guidance to the board and auditing our fund.

HOW OUR SHARIA-COMPLIANT LITIGATION FUND WORKS

Litigation funding is a simple process involving an agreement between two parties: one is the claimant, who is involved in a legal dispute, and the other is the funder, who provides funding for the litigation claim.

The funder finances the case, and the parties enter into an agreement to share any court award or settlement. From a Sharia perspective, it works as an award-sharing arrangement.

For the Insaaf Litigation Fund, we use lawtech to enhance our case selection process, before independent legal experts review each case. We only fund cases that are Sharia-compliant and have high chances of success.

The case selection process works like this:

 

Every case is disputed between a claimant and a defendant. There are only two possible outcomes:

  • The claimant’s case is successful (meaning it is settled early or wins in court): Funds are paid to the law firm representing the claimant, before they’re distributed between the funder and the claimant.
  • The claimant’s case is unsuccessful (meaning it loses in court): The fund’s deployed capital is at risk and not recoverable in the unlikely event a case loses.

The funding and award process works like this:

OUR RISK MANAGEMENT STRATEGY

As a Sharia-compliant fund, we share risk with the claimant in each case. If they lose, we lose out too. Unlike conventional litigation, Sharia compliance requires that the funder has no capital protection through after-the-event (ATE) insurance.

Of course, we manage risk where appropriate to maximise our chances of success and our targeted returns.

Our strategy of focusing on lower-value cases with high chances of success and a high propensity to reach early settlements means that risk is spread across a higher surface area. However, it’s important to note that capital is always at risk.
