FAQ

HOW DOES THE INSOLVENCY FUNDING PROCESS WORK?
We invest on a case by case basis and our general process can be found here.
HOW LONG DOES ASERTIS TAKE TO GIVE AN ANSWER ON POSSIBLE FUNDING OR ACQUISITION?
Asertis can provide an answer in as little as 24 hours.
WHAT IS THE MINIMUM AND MAXIMUM CLAIM SIZE THAT ASERTIS WILL CONSIDER FOR INSOLVENCY MATTERS?
Asertis prefer claims with a value of over £150,000. No claim is too big and our Fund enables us to purchase or fund multi-million-pound cases.
DOES ASERTIS OFFER AN ASSIGNMENT OPTION OR FUNDING ONLY?
Asertis is flexible and happy to offer either assignment or funding, subject to the nature of the claim and request.
DOES ASERTIS USE THEIR OWN ADVISORS OR LEAVE EXISTING ADVISORS IN PLACE?
We are happy to work with the incumbent law firms if they wish to be retained. In cases where there is no incumbent law firm, Asertis work with a number of partner firms of solicitors to pursue claims. We are however always interested in meeting new law firms.
IS A COUNSEL’S OPINION ESSENTIAL FOR MY CASE TO BE CONSIDERED?
No, it is not essential, although it is expected where a case is complex or high risk. If there is currently no Counsel’s opinion, then Asertis is happy to consider obtaining Counsel’s opinion at its own cost, which it may share with the insolvency estate.
WHERE I HAVE ASSIGNED THE CASE, WILL I REMAIN INVOLVED OR AT LEAST BE KEPT REGULARLY INFORMED OF PROGRESS ON THE CASE?
Asertis will take direction and/or consult throughout the life of the case. We will provide transparency, if required, by providing regular progress updates.
CAN YOU REFER WORK E.G. FORENSIC ACCOUNTANCY AND OTHER PROFESSIONAL WORK?
Opportunities do arise for us to refer forensic accountancy and other professional work and we will look to work with trusted business partners.
DOES ASERTIS HAVE A FIXED FORMULA FOR SHARING REALISATIONS?
We do not have a fixed formula for sharing realisations. We take each individual claim on its merits and reach agreement with Insolvency Practitioners on a case by case basis. We always aim to achieve the best possible solution for the estate.
WHAT DOES ASERTIS REQUIRE TO REVIEW THE CLAIM QUICKLY AND DOES ASERTIS HAVE MANDATORY INFORMATION REQUESTS?
We do not have a mandatory information request to review a claim. We are happy with a succinct email summary together with documentary evidence and, if available, a letter of claim and/or pleadings, Counsel’s advice, plus budget information.
DOES ASERTIS HAVE A DEMONSTRABLE TRACK RECORD IN FUNDING INSOLVENCY LITIGATION CLAIMS?
Yes. Asertis has committed funding millions of pounds to a number of insolvency funding and acquisition matters since its inception of 2020.

We invest in commercial disputes, group actions and other forms of disputes across a number of jurisdictions. We will work with you to make sure that the funding package is suitable for your particular needs.

Our specialist insolvency funding operates through a process that is straightforward and flexible, helping you to realise value. We complete every step in the process efficiently and quickly to progress without delay towards achieving a successful outcome.
