Woodsford offers portfolio funding arrangements for claimants and lawyers on whom we have been able to carry out enhanced due diligence, for example through previously financed cases. This means that our investment and our return may be spread across a portfolio of claims, and claimants and their lawyers benefit from accelerated financing and a lower cost of capital reflecting the lower risk profile of investments made across a number of cases.
For law firms in particular, portfolio funding offers an ideal financing solution. Through this approach, we can provide financing for firms where our return is conditional on their success in international arbitration cases. Our financing can be used for any purpose, including recruitment and expansion plans.
Portfolio funding from Woodsford has a number of advantages over bank loans and partner equity. Our financing is non-recourse, meaning we get a return only in the event of successful outcomes in the cases within the portfolio. Our capital does not burden the firm with debt.
