When your company's stock or option incentive plan is administered by our Equity Incentive Plan Administrator, your employees can open an Interactive Brokers account where they automatically receive their vested shares, and you can monitor their trading activities with EmployeeTrack.
Employee Incentive Plans
Our Equity Incentive Plan Administrator provides cloud-enabled services for global equity-based incentive plans, including administration, financial reporting and compliance. Our partnership allows us to invite employees whose award shares are administered by the Equity Incentive Plan Administrator to open IB accounts and automatically receive their vested shares in those accounts. When we create new accounts for these employees, we automatically load their employee data and move their vested shares. These new IB clients will be able to see their unvested and vested shares as well as other broker accounts in PortfolioAnalyst.
When you choose employee incentive plans through Interactive Brokers and our partner Equity Incentive Plan Administrator, you enjoy the following benefits:
- A streamlined account opening process that automatically transfers information from your employee¹s incentive plan to their new IB account. Employees can trade their company stock (their vested shares are automatically added to their new IB account) as well as their other investments.
- Employees realize all of the benefits of an IB account, including:
- Transparent, low commissions and financing rates, and best price executions. Minimum transaction costs are as low as $1. Financing and margin rates are as low as the Fed Funds Effective Overnight plus 25 basis points.
