Build a supply of shares for future plan events

In Hong Kong, there are regulations and industry standards that surround the source of shares for employee share-based incentive plans, and these regulations can be complex to understand. Employee share plans often need a ready supply of shares for vesting and companies have choices when it comes to sourcing them, including purchasing shares direct from the market or issuing new shares.

An Employee Share Plan Trust provides the flexibility to facilitate and support both these approaches. This is why trusts have become one of the most common ways for companies to manage their employee equity programs.
