Commenting on the results, Patrick Moloney, CEO of Litigation Capital Management, said:  “We have achieved great progress during the period despite disruption as a result of COVID-19 lockdowns and unprecedented restrictions in the areas we operate.

“I am pleased with the progress in our Fund Management business, which is now well established, with our first US$150m Fund now fully committed and the US$200m first close of Fund II with a final close target of US$300m by the period end. Equally, our portfolio of direct investments has performed well given the difficult external circumstances impacting our industry, with a number of ongoing investments resolved and awaiting payment, or awaiting judgment in the second half.

“As conditions normalise and with the core executive team now in place in our London office, LCM is now in a stronger position to grow both divisions, enabling us to access greater amounts of capital and facilitate the expansion of our portfolio of investments. The countercyclical nature of our industry suggests that economic and market conditions at present, represent a growing opportunity for the Company which will be realised over the long-term. We look to the second half and beyond with optimism and confidence.”
