IMF Bentham Asia provides litigation finance and investment capital to claimants and law firms for large commercial disputes in Hong Kong and Singapore.

IMF Bentham Asia is the Asian arm of IMF Bentham Limited (ASX:IMF), one of the oldest and most experienced commercial funders in the world.

Our Asian business is operated from a wholly owned subsidiary in Singapore, focusing on insolvency and international arbitration claims in Hong Kong and Singapore and other commercial claims to the extent permissible by local laws and regulation.

As a specialist regional office of a leading global litigation funder, we offer law firms and their clients a risk sharing partnership tailored to the local market and backed by a proven record of success.

Experience

When other commercial litigation funders talk about experience they typically refer to their successful careers as lawyers or academics or business people.

At IMF Bentham, when we talk about experience, we're not only talking about this. We are also referring to the fact that our team pioneered and helped shape the commercial litigation funding industry in Australia, in the U.S.A. and now in Asia.

Since listing on the ASX in 2001, IMF Bentham’s group has reviewed several thousand cases and has seen over 162 case investments through to completion, netting over AUD 2.1 billion in settlements or judgments. No other funder has a track record that can compare.

Partnership

A strong partnership with IMF Bentham can add enormous value to your cause.

We share risk; we deploy financial, economic, investigative and ethical experts where needed; and we align the interests of all parties — client, law firm and funder — to enhance collaboration. We partner with you to help you win.

Success

We have an enviable record of success in the commercial litigation finance industry.

We boast many "firsts":

  • The first publicly listed litigation funder, in 2001
  • The first funder to be publicly regulated as a financial institution
  • The first funder to invest in claims breaking the AUD 3 billion value barrier, and
  • The first to fund disputes across continents: Australia, North America, Europe, Africa, and Asia
