Commercial Litigation Funding

Mark Wells, Managing Partner

Mark Wells is the managing partner of Calunius Capital.

Mark’s professional career includes 20 years in investment banking, principally in the field of derivatives. Mark left the banking industry in 2006 when he became one of the founding partners of Calunius Capital with the goal of providing litigants with solutions to the financial risk of litigation and arbitration.


Mark’s professional life has been spent in valuing contingent assets from an investment banking point of view. He takes the view that there could be no better example of a contingent asset than a claimant’s rights in a piece of litigation or arbitration. It is therefore easy to see why Mark is so heavily involved in the assessment of the financial and valuation aspects of the cases in which Calunius has the opportunity to invest.

Mark has a degree in Engineering from Cambridge University.

Rusoro wins enforcement against Venezuela

March 2018

A US court has confirmed a US$1.3 billion ICSID additional facility award in favour of Canadian mining company Rusoro against Venezuela, rejecting arguments that the arbitrators exceeded their authority in calculating damages or that enforcement should be stayed pending a challenge to the award in France. In a judgment on 1 March, Judge Richard Leon in the US District Court for the District of Columbia confirmed the award, which Vancouver-based Rusoro obtained in 2016 in a claim under the Canada-Venezuela bilateral investment treaty financed by Calunius. An article on the decision is available on GAR, click on the headline to access it.
