Having your own customised Investment Agreement is a step in the right direction. Having the relevant clauses drafted so as to protect your investment is a wise move. 


An Investment Agreement is a contract between an investor and a company or anyone else handling the investor's monies and/or assets. 

It mainly deals with the following:

  • How the investment is used.
  • When and how any returns are paid to the investor.
  • To what extent can the parties utilise the investment and for what purpose.
  • What happens in the event of a dispute.
  • What is each of the parties rights and obligations are?

These defences will enable you to be released from certain conditions in the contract or the whole contract. [...]

This typically takes three forms. [...]
These claims are typically called remedies for breach of contract. There are 2 types of remedies – common law remedies and equitable remedies. • Common law remedies include damages and quantum meruit. • Equitable remedies include specific performance and injunctions. The main practical difference between these 2 types of remedies is that equitable remedies are at the discretion of the courts – even when you win the case in court, the court may decline to award equitable remedies, but it must always allow for common law damages to be claimed and awarded, because damages are available ‘as of right’.
