Why Capital Shield?


Individual investors have the ability to buy insurance to cover almost everything of value in their lives, transferring the risk to an insurance carrier for many types of assets they own.

However, individual investors – until now – have not been able to insure their money or invested assets in the event their investment advisor / asset manager embezzles their money. They often don’t know they are exposed, nor that they would have to potentially bear the loss of all of their funds if their finances are not protected.


This is where Capital Shield Comes in.

Policyholder profiles


Baby Boomers


Individuals who are retired with a sizable portfolio and cannot afford to lose their investment.

Successful Business People


Individuals who have had financial success in their careers. Anyone from private entrepreneurs to corporate executives.

Family Wealth


Individuals who have inherited funds. This includes a child (trust) or someone who inherited money and needs it to bridge the gap between getting by and living a comfortable life. They too, do not want to risk losing their investment if these funds are invested.

Entertainer / Athlete


Sports players, actresses/actors, etc. Those whose careers can be short lived so investing and safeguarding those investments are crucial.

Is Capital Shield Right for Me?


Entrusting securities industry professionals with invested assets is common among individual investors, but increasingly often, the industry has seen these individual investors being taken advantage of. Investment embezzlement is a crime present in the back of many investors’ minds since the Madoff scandal of 2008, but even with robust technology and regulations, embezzlement continues to happen today.

Capital Shield is the premier insurance product for people who want to protect their assets from embezzlement by their investment advisors, asset managers, fund managers, or other securities industry professionals.
