Employee Share Ownership Plans

An Employee Share Ownership Plan (ESOP) is a method of spreading stock ownership among employees.
As more companies conclude that linking executives’ compensation to employers’ performance is the
best way to attract, motivate, and retain talented employees, stock and stock-based compensation
programmes become essential. The Trustee receives contributions from the employer, investments in
company stock in accordance with the employers’ instructions and the Plan rules.


Trustee services include:

  • Safekeeping of all assets in custody
  • Assistance with Trust structure, Plan design, implementation and documentation.
  • Account valuations and statements to plan members.
  • Ongoing communication and annual meetings with Plan sponsors
  • Benefit payments


  • The assets of an ESOP are held under trust outside the legal jurisdiction and control of the employing
    company and so are secure and unaffected by the long-term financial circumstances of the company.
    Trust business in Bermuda is regulated by the Bermuda Monetary Authority.
  • Our experienced team of professionally qualified and experienced trust, pension and customer service
    staff ensures that members’ benefits are well secured and administered.

Fees are determined in accordance with requested services and will be provided upon request.
