Who loses money on Football Index?
Unlike spread betting, you can never lose more than your stake. For you to lose all of your stake, your Shares would have to be of no value in the Market and you would have to have not won any Dividend payouts.
Whilst your Shares in a footballer can appreciate in value, they can also depreciate in value when other Traders sell Shares in that footballer. See Player Prices for more info.
A Share lasts for three (3) years from the date you place the Bet (the ‘Share Period’).
Upon the expiry of the Share Period, the Bet will expire – meaning that you will lose your stake and the right to participate in any Dividend. In advance of the expiry of the Share Period, it is open to you to take steps to Sell the Share via the Website and/or the App and Buy new Shares in the same footballer. This will result in ‘resetting’ the Share Period associated with the new Shares in that footballer.
