What is Vestd?
Vestd is the first and only regulated share scheme platform for UK SMEs. Founders (and other professionals) use it to design, launch and manage share and option schemes.
We are incredibly passionate about sharing ownership. Research has consistently shown that giving people a slice of the action increases their happiness, loyalty, productivity and performance.
Progressive founders know this and many offer equity to employees as part of the compensation package.
Traditionally, it has been a complex and costly process, but we built Vestd to make things as easy and cost-effective as possible.
Why choose Vestd?
Our platform is the modern way to share ownership with your team. It is comprehensively integrated with Companies House, which makes it the only fully digital share scheme platform in the UK.
All customers have access to our core features: digital equity management, the ability to issue shares and options instantly, a real time cap table, legal docs, the option scheme designer and shareholder dashboards.
Customers receive support from our team of specialists, who will help you to design a best in class, tax-efficient share scheme.
We have schemes for employees, NEDs, advisors, and anyone else who is critical to the success of a business, and we're big on conditional equity (you can set milestones for people to reach before the shares or options are released).
If all of that has piqued your interest then book in a free share scheme consultation and let's talk equity.

Throughout his career, Ifty has seen that better businesses are built when all those helping to build them, are truly vested in their success. He believes that ownership of a business should not be restricted to those who have cash to invest, but also available to those creating success through their efforts and contribution. That’s why he’s so committed to building Vestd, removing the cost and complexity that prevent so many from benefiting from the ownership effect, and us all benefiting from the great businesses it can facilitate.
