Invicta Capital has successfully completed its latest round of funding, providing significant growth capital for the business as it enters its next stage of expansion. The injection of additional capital will service rapidly growing demand for small and medium-sized case financing in the UK.
Invicta Managing Director Chris Deadman said:
‘This new financing signals our intention to dominate this sector of the market. We are delighted not only with the extent of the capital we have raised but also the fact that our backers share our belief that our financing model will be the shape of things to come. We have a burgeoning pipeline of new cases introduced to us by lawyers and insolvency practitioners who are tired of the delays and uncertainty traditionally associated with applying for litigation finance. Our capital is quick and easy to access and we are looking forward to the next 12 months.’
Invicta commenced operations in 2017 in London and quickly established a reputation for funding small and medium-sized UK cases with the minimum of fuss.
Chris Deadman added:
‘From day one we have prided ourselves on delivering a quick and easy to understand application process by which our law firm partners can access our capital. We believe that the market in small/medium-sized cases represents a fantastic opportunity for a funder who is both well-resourced and nimble as this section of the market is currently ill-served by existing players. As other participants have found to their cost, the challenge in this space lies in generating sufficient dealflow to generate positive returns – this funding round allows us to develop our already impressive market penetration. We will also shortly be announcing the appointment of one of the best known and respected figures in the London legal community to drive business origination. We are thrilled that he has elected to join us and he brings with him a huge number of long-standing relationships with target law firms.’
