What makes Vestd different?

Vestd is the original and only FCA regulated digital equity management platform in the UK.
A few others have started to follow our lead, so what makes us stand out?

We are the UK's equity specialists

Vestd exists to make equity management simple and our product is built with this singular focus in mind. We are not a jack of all trades. As such, our team have become genuine experts in this space. To quote one customer: "What they don't know about share schemes isn't worth knowing."

We provide the greatest choice

You can choose from five different scheme types: EMI schemes, Growth Shares, Unapproved Options, Ordinary Shares and Agile Partnerships (our proprietary equity distribution framework). Other platforms do not have this range available.

Our schemes are designed to fit your needs

We allow you to choose between exit-only and exercisable option schemes, in line with your personal philosophy around sharing ownership. You can also set up dynamic vesting schedules (monthly, annual, or custom). And we’ll help you to design schemes based around conditions and milestones.

Our pricing model is subscription-based

You can spread the costs across the lifetime of your scheme (pay monthly or annually). We build relationships with our customers and provide ongoing support to eliminate risk. We won’t just launch your scheme and leave you to it, because it is too easy to fall into a compliance trap.

Our platform is the most advanced in the UK

Vestd is fully integrated with Companies House, so you can issue shares and options instantly via the platform and see an updated 100% accurate cap table in real time. Everything is done digitally - including shareholder signing and authorisation - so there's no need for form filling or stamps.

You’ll save thousands in fees

We take care of any valuations that you need for HMRC (growing companies need at least one per year). Valuations are put together by our team of in-house analysts, so there's no need to pay an accountant. Nor lawyers for that matter, as we provide you with industry standard legal documents.

Our customers

Customers genuinely love our product and the service levels we provide. They say very good things on G2Crowd, where we have a 4.8 rating (out of 5). Read our customer stories to learn more.
