Welcome to our first newsletter to celebrate the successful launch of Augusta Ventures (Australia) in 8 May 2017.

We are proud to have committed investments of around $7 million in 12 cases this year, with a large future pipeline. We are particularly pleased to have established a presence as a serious participant in the litigation funding market in Australia. This reflects the efforts of our team and the receptiveness of lawyers and insolvency practitioners in the litigation space.

The Augusta business model has proven to be as successful in Australia as it is in the UK (where Augusta is the largest litigation funder (by case volume) with over 120 cases funded and approximately $55 million invested in cases since 2014).

Going forward, we are keen to maintain our responsiveness to client needs, competitive pricing, quick turnarounds on funding decisions, our hands-off approach in the conduct of the case, flexibility, and ability to fund commercial and insolvency claims of any size (from small seed funding of as little as $5,000 to class actions in excess of $7 million.

We would like to extend a big thank you to everyone who has supported us this year.

Our team of experienced legal and financial professionals are here to help with your litigation funding needs and can be contacted by calling Neill Brennan, Michelle Silvers, Philip Lomax or Liz Huckerby on 02 8311 0555.

Finally, we would like to wish you all a prosperous 2018. We look forward to assisting you in the new year.
Mira Brennan, CEO.
