AIR Asset Management Partners with Kerberos Capital Management to Add Legal Finance Allocation to its Multi-Strategy Product

AIR Asset Management (“AIRAM”), a Chicago-based hedge fund management firm focused on investing in life settlements, annuities, and private credit, today announced its strategic partnership with Kerberos Capital Management (“Kerberos”), a leading private credit asset management firm that specializes in direct lending to law firms. The partnership enables AIRAM to enhance and further diversify its multi-strategy investment product through adding a legal finance asset allocation focused on law firm lending. 

“We are excited to partner with Kerberos to offer investors this highly complementary allocation, which aligns with AIRAM’s mission to deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns through resilient, non-correlated investment products,” said Stephen Luongo, Chief Investment Officer of AIR Asset Management. “The loans Kerberos underwrites to law firms provide AIRAM an attractive value proposition, including reliable interest income that not only contributes to overall returns, but also supports liquidity and risk management. We look forward to leveraging Kerberos’ track record, leadership, and deep expertise in law firm lending to expand our private credit mandate.”

The Kerberos investment team is led by Joe Siprut, who was a nationally recognized attorney prior to founding Kerberos. Kerberos boasts an extensive roster of relationships in the plaintiff’s bar and law firm lending space, making it one of the few litigation funders with underwriters that have significant experience from their former capacities as trial lawyers and senior litigators. Its strategy focuses on originating and underwriting loans to law firms that generate success-fee-based revenue by litigating mass tort, class action, and personal injury claims.

“I have long admired what AIR Asset Management’s CEO Rich Beletuz and his team have built, and we are thrilled to be supporting their expansion into legal finance,” said Joe Siprut, Founder, Chief Executive Officer, and Chief Investment Officer of Kerberos. “A clear benefit of our strategy is our uniquely diversified approach, which allows for cross-collateralization, low default rates, and a steady return profile, from which AIRAM’s impressive suite of non-correlated offerings is well positioned to benefit. I’m excited to work with AIRAM’s talented team of investment professionals as we execute on our shared goal to deliver for our respective investors.”*
