RISK

All persons who register as an ‘investor member’ on this Website should read carefully the following warnings before making any investment.

All investment products carry risks. The relevant webpages and documents will cover risks specific to an individual offer. Please bear in mind the following general risks involved when investing through this Website:


YOUR PERSONAL DECISION TO INVEST

A decision to invest through a Profile Match, via Bowstring Capital LTD, to fund a litigation case, is a personal decision by you and no responsibility for the consequences of that decision is accepted by either Bowstring Capital LTD, or by any of its partners, directors, agents, employees or other members. To invest through one of the of the Profile Matches, you need to understand the following important risks:


YOU ARE NOT COVERED BY THE FINANCIAL SERVICES COMPENSATION SCHEME

When your capital is lent to a borrower it is not covered.


LOSSES CAN EXCEED INVESTED AMOUNT

Litigation funding investments, whether via bonds or equities, carry high risks as well as the possibility of high rewards. Accordingly, each investor should consider very carefully whether such investments are suitable in the light of their own personal circumstances, commitments and available financial resources. Engaging in any investment activity may expose you to a significant risk of losing all of your investment and in some remote circumstances up to double the amount invested.

If a claimant loses a case, it is likely that you will lose all, or part, of your initial investment and receive no outstanding or future interest payments. Alternatively, the litigant may settle the case on terms that do not enable all of the interest and/or capital to be recoverable under the bond or that the defendant has insufficient funds to pay damages sufficient to enable all of the interest and/or capital under the bond to be recovered. 

In such circumstances neither the Claimant, nor Bowstring Capital, LTD, will pay you back your investment or compensate you for your losses, or for your membership fee. Your losses by investing can exceed the amount you put in.

Bowstring Capital, LTD, is NOT advising or processing the investment. The Profile Match is NOT a recommendation regarding the veracity or lucrativeness of the investment.

The majority of litigation funding opportunities for financial fraud claims are high risk. Please be warned that the targeted returns on the documents related to each case are not guarantees. Regarding the accuracy of the information related to each claim, Bowstring Capital LTD, will have an assessment by the attorney taking the claim, confirming that the latter have conducted appropriate due diligence into the facts of the case. Bowstring Capital, LTD will also undertakes due diligence on the facts as presented to us by the claimants and other persons associated with the case, we are heavily reliant upon the claimant’s future lawyer to provide us with information. Please be warned that Bowstring Capital LTD is not responsible for checking the accuracy of these facts and statements, which may not always prove to be true or complete.


LIQUIDITY

As an investor you should be aware that investments such as litigation funding are long term investments that could take several years to yield a return (and investment returns are not guaranteed). No established market exists for the trading of these investment, and therefore bonds and shares are not easily realizable. It must be appreciated that there could be difficulty in selling such investments at a reasonable price and, in some circumstances, it may be difficult to sell them at any price.


DIVERSIFY YOUR PORTFOLIO

Diversification by spreading your money across different types of investments should help reduce your overall risk of financial loss. We highly recommend investors do this to maintain a balanced portfolio. Investors should also consider avoiding putting money in the same investment as immediate family members. Investors should only invest a proportion of their available investment funds in bonds or shares being offered on this Website due to the high risks involved.


TAX

Bowstring Capital, LTD recommend that you take your own tax advice on any investments, including litigation funding.


RECOMMENDATION

Bowstring Capital LTD do not provide advice or make personal recommendations. If you are in any doubt about the action you should take, you should seek advice from an independent financial advisor.


PAST PERFORMANCE

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. You should not rely on any past performance as a guarantee of future investment performance.
