Litigation and Dispute Funding Solutions
VIP FUND connects litigation finance investors with lawsuit plaintiffs
VIP FUND provides an investment marketplace which connects investors in litigation finance with plaintiffs and law firms who have strong cases and need capital to win them.
Our solutions assist companies and individuals in managing the cost and risk of litigation, protecting the claimant from adverse costs risk.
At VIP FUND, we understand, that the early stages of case development can be costly and are able to provide clients with early-stage funding. This covers the risk and burden of getting a case to full funding, allowing you to act more decisively and strategically.
Litigation funding unlocks the value of legal claims by advancing funds to plaintiffs or defendants before their cases are resolved.
Investors have found litigation funding as an increasingly viable option to generate the large returns they expect from the stock market without the frustrating ups and downs
This enables investors to make one investment in one fund and then be diversified among all the individual cases that we post to our site.
For some investors, getting a piece of a legal settlement can happen without ever being part of a lawsuit.

Asset Management Fund
The Luxburg Carolath Asset Management Fund primarily invests in traditional asset classes such as cash and fixed income and convertible bonds. The fund can be used as a portfolio component in the context of an asset management or advisory mandate to cover the asset class fixed income. Fixed income investments can be made on a global basis in all currencies. Both investment grade and non investment grade bonds can be purchased within the fund. A smaller allocation of the fund up to 40% can be invested into convertible bonds on a global basis in all currencies. The rest will be invested in fixed income and cash.
The investment process follows different views:
First our intention is to establish a macro view, second the credit view, third the interest rate risk which is managed with the duration of the portfolio and fourth the value of a specific investment as combination market price, credit and liquidity. Our investment team monitors the portfolio on a daily basis with a sophisticated portfolio management system.
The Luxburg Carolath Bank Fund invests in a first step in an existing bank and will develop their activities. The bank is a commercial bank with a full offer of usual banking products. Part of these activities is transaction business in retail and corporate banking offering Lombard and loan business and credit card services. Of course the bank must have a sophisticated electronic banking with all basic functionalities. In a second step the fund will enter into a participation of a medium sized security company based in Germany. The company is located in Berlin and has 500+ employees is one of the largest companies in the money and value transport sector throughout Germany.
As a professional player they fullfil all requirements. Thousands of Customers are from all industries (banks, wholesale and retail, private sector...). In a third step our intention is to take over a german bank which is located in Berlin. The bank fund has secured an option to take over this bank until end of this year.
Security House Fund
The LC Security House Berlin, which is due to be completed in late 2021, will provide a new service to private and corporate users of safety deposit box systems. The site in Berlin will be the pilot project, with a plan in place to establish further sites throughout Germany.
The safety deposit boxes currently rented out by local banks and precious metal dealers are small in size and nature, as well as being subjective to restrictive access times. Despite this, they are very popular, meaning that many of the providers have waiting lists.
The LC Security House is situated in central Berlin and will provide an alternative concept, ensuring paramount security. The facility will offer approximately 232,000 safety deposit boxes and 48 vaults in a variety of sizes. Furthermore, part of the premises will be leased to Luxburg Carolath Bank and WSN Sicherheit und Service GmbH. These organisations will also be able to undertake handling services for the nearby branch of the German Central Bank (Bundesbank).
Total investment costs (TIC) account for 136.3 million euros (incl. working capital of 17 million euros and approximately 26 million euros for the realized purchase of the land). This is offset by an annual turnover of 34 million euros as from 2022 (based on 30% utilisation level of the safety deposit boxes) to 55 million euros (utilisation level of 50%). This is set to equate to earnings after taxes of between 15.5 million euros (based on a 30% utilisation level of the safety deposit boxes) and 24 million euros (based on a 50% utilisation level). Consequently, the annual return for investors who put up TIC of 136.3 million euros will commence at 11% and rise to a permanent rate of 17%. It is predicted that break-even point for investors will be in late 2028 (i.e. in 10 years' time) in spite of them having to wait 4 years (i.e. until the end of 2021) before their money is paid back or receive a return on their investment.
The investment's IRR will be 7.4% p.a. for the period 2018 (project launch) – 2031 (end of the business forecast).
