Crime policies are also know as Fidelity Guarantee policies and cover financial loss which you have sustained directly as a result of dishonest or fraudulent acts.

It is now common for some form of this cover to be included in Management Liability policies.

The fidelity cover itself provides protection against loss arising out of the dishonest or fraudulent acts of employees. Examples of claims are embezzlement of money or theft of stock.

Direct financial loss resulting from computer related crime is also available.
