So what can you do?
Manage your equity digitally
Vestd is the first, only regulated and most advanced digital equity management platform in the UK. Use it to issue shares and options in a compliant manner. Reduce the hassle of managing share schemes with digital signing and authorisation.
Issue shares and options instantly
Adding new people to your share scheme? Distribute equity at the touch of a button. The platform automatically syncs with Companies House, so there’s no need for form filling or stamps. Easy, safe, and immediate.
View your error-free cap table
Get a real time view of your ownership structure via a digital cap table. Stop using Excel! We’ve seen so many funding rounds come to a sudden halt because of mistakes in the cap table. Our cap tables are always up to date and 100% accurate.
Design a bespoke option scheme
Use the option scheme designer to set the terms and conditions of your scheme. Time-based vesting is standard (choose monthly, annually, or custom). Vestd is the only platform that allows you to set your option scheme as ‘exercisable’ or ‘exit-only’.
Choose from five scheme types
You can distribute equity a number of different ways on Vestd. We offer EMI option schemes (incredibly tax-efficient and cost effective), Unapproved Options (very flexible), Growth Shares, ordinary shares, and Agile Partnerships (our proprietary, milestone-based equity distribution framework).
Use our legal documents
For non-complex schemes there’s no need for a lawyer. Just use our templates and then customise your scheme to suit your needs.
Improve shareholder engagement
We provide shareholder and option holder dashboards, so scheme members can regularly check their ownership position and model out what it may be worth.
Fast track the launch of your scheme
In a rush? If there is a funding or other deadline on the horizon we can move quickly. It is usually possible to start your scheme in a matter of days.
