ESOP Administration

The Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) is a benefit scheme that gives employees ownership interest in companies. It's a corporate finance strategy that aligns the interest of employees with those of shareholders. The company usually holds the shares provided to employees in a trust for safety and growth, until the employee resigns or retires from the company.​

When establishing an ESOP, it's typical to use the services of an independent third party. At Vistra, we can support any entity or corporate that's keen to set up such a scheme.  ​

Similar in intent, Employee Welfare Trusts (EWT) are established to cater to employee welfare needs, such as funding child education, medical costs and extraordinary expenses not covered under compensation.​

The first step to overcoming these challenges is understanding China’s legal entity options, which allow multinationals to perform business activities in the country.
The London interbank offered rate, or Libor, has been a benchmark for establishing borrowing terms around the world since 1986, used in tens of millions of contracts covering everything from mortgages and student loans to global bonds and derivatives. But Libor’s shortcomings, which mainly include a vulnerability to manipulation revealed by several crises and scandals, led global financial regulators to replace it with more secure benchmarks.
