Profile Investment is the first funder with dedicated and regulated funding vehicles for the purpose of non recourse financing of disputes. We have offices in London, Paris and Singapore.

As a regulated fund Profile Investment adheres to EU anti-money laundering regulations so that you always know our investments into disputes come from legitimate sources.  The advantages of regulation mean that our investors and the parties we fund have peace of mind that each investment is based on a comprehensive assessment of the legal merits, quantum and enforcement risks.

Established in 2018, Profile Investment is the result of a collaboration between our two Founders who have between them over 15 years experience in non recourse financing for disputes.  Profile Investment is comprised of 3 separate departments – Legal, Quantum and Enforcement.  We have a merits driven approach and set out to provide the best financing terms for the most meritorious cases.  We take ethics seriously.  A lawyer’s relationship with their client is sacred and their client must always be incentivised to invest their time and energy into the best possible outcome.  We do not provide funding on the basis of the potential for windfall returns.  Our cross disciplinary analysis, our regulated status and our ethically minded assessment of investments ensures that we only prosper when you do.
