Why choose Vestd for Enterprise Management Incentives?

The EMI specialists

Vestd was the first purpose-built platform for EMI schemes. We have helped thousands of founders to create share and option schemes, so we know our EMI options.

Guided scheme design

Vestd provides UK companies with a fully guided service for share and option schemes. You’ll always get five star support. Get started by booking a free consultation.

Company valuations

You’ll need one for HMRC to start a scheme, and also in future if your company grows. Our valuations team will provide you with up-to-date, defensible valuations as part of the service.

The platform itself allows you to manage all aspects of share and option management concisely in one place. The automations and integrations save you time. But while the platform is great, it is the team that makes Vestd stand out. From pre-sales to onboarding and the ever-helpful support team - not only do they support on the platform but provide excellent knowledge in this area.
