"You can buy insurance for almost everything else of value in your life from houses and cars to boats and art. But until now, individual investors have not been able to insure their money in the event that their asset manager or investment advisor embezzles their money," said Travus Pope, co-founder of Capital Shield Inc. "That's why we partnered with Berkley FinSecure to create Capital Shield®. A few of us have personally experienced embezzlement firsthand. We realized as victims, that there remains a serious exposure that people have no way of protecting themselves from."

Entrusting securities industry profssionals with invested assets is common among a wide array of investors but unfortunately individuals are being taken advantage of more frequently. Investment embezzlement crime made headlines after the devastating Madoff scandal of 2008 and drove many security enhancements through the industry. Even with added regulations, greater transparency and robust monitoring technology; embezzlement schemes continue to happen today.
