Preventing Insider Trading

People with Purpose

Never use or disclose material, nonpublic information about Allstate or another company improperly.

Purpose in Practice

Preventing insider trading means we:

  • Never buy or sell related securities if we are personally aware of material, nonpublic information about Allstate, its subsidiaries or any other company
  • Do not "tip"—the direct or indirect passing of material, nonpublic information about any company to someone who might use it in a trade
  • Use strict security measures to protect sensitive information
  • Protect material, nonpublic information from unauthorized disclosure

Insider trading cheats shareholders, distorts markets and erodes the trust of those we serve. It's a serious violation that can carry significant penalties. For more information, see the Insider Trading Policy.
