Axiom fraud leaves offshore providers exposed to massive claims for damages

November 19, 2012 by David Marchant


  • Axiom's independent directors are still leading investors to believe the Fund is salvageable
  • Insider Jason Corbett closed down investment manager's Cayman office and flew off island with all computers and documentation
  • Insiders had "rape and pillage mentality", says former group employee
  • Investment manager kept 50% of all loans issued to British law firms as a "Facilitation Fee"
  • Portland Financial Management invoiced millions of pounds for work that was apparently never done
Offshore providers in the Cayman Islands, Isle of Man, and Switzerland face huge liabilities after allowing insiders to loot Axiom Legal Financing Fund of tens of millions of pounds. Those most at risk from being sued by Axiom's eventual liquidators appear to be DMS Group, JP Funds Group, BDO Cayman, and Ogier, all in the Cayman Islands; Turnstone Group, in the Isle of Man; and Portland Financial Management, of Switzerland.

      Cayman Court Secrecy: A Huge Red Flag for Foreign Investors & Clients
