What is InvestSure?
InvestSure is an insurance product that investors can purchase which protects them from any losses in a company’s share price which caused by allegations of management fraud / dishonesty. Importantly, the fraud does not need to be proven for you to recover your losses.
When there is news of possible fraud in a company you have covered, coupled with a 10% drop in the share price within 2 days of that news, the cover is triggered. You then have 30 days to make an assessment and, if you decide to sell your shares, upload your supporting documentation onto InvestSure’s platform – your claim will then be paid within 7 days. Management does not have to be convicted before you can claim – you just need to suffer a loss from this type of event and you will be covered!
