The UK’s equity experts
Vestd was the first purpose-built platform for ESOPs. We have helped thousands of founders to create share and option schemes.
Equity is a brilliant tool to keep the team focused on the company’s goals. It has never been easier to set up and manage a share scheme.
✓ 95% of customers say their scheme has increased employee retention
✓ You can set specific conditions for recipients
✓ Equity improves productivity and engagement
The old way involves lawyers and accountants. The new way is much more straightforward - you can issue shares directly via the Vestd platform and keep Companies House up to date. There’s no need for any paperwork. We’ll help you design and launch your scheme. The platform makes lifetime scheme management simple.
Each company is different but there are a few proven pathways to follow. Here are a few fast facts about ESOPs:
✓ Average employee equity pools are c.18%
✓ Execs are twice as likely to get shares or options
✓ EMI schemes offer the best tax efficiency
✓ Growth shares are the most non-dilutive
✓ Unapproved options are fast and flexible
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.
Great platform. The team always provide brilliant support. I would definitely recommend using Vestd to anyone who needs to set up and administer an EMI scheme.
Straight forward and structured approach - so good for founders and also FD/CFO/advisor who is looking to get share capital and share option schemes in place.
A fantastic platform. The price is fixed. The customer support is fantastic and readily available. They have held our hand right through the whole process.
I love Vestd and I wish I had found it sooner. It makes the whole process of issuing shares whether they're growth shares or ordinary shares incredibly simple.
Amazing shift from Excel to Vestd. The support team were amazing and did a great job of completing our setup and we have been very pleased at being able to better manage our governance over time.
