An employee stock purchase plan is one of the best ways to incentivize employees and make them feel invested in your company’s performance. But not all plans are the same. Each company must carefully determine which approach to equity compensation makes sense for its goals. This is precisely the type of experience-based guidance that AST has offered for over 40 years.

We help our clients build the best plans for their companies, communicating clearly and often with their employee shareholders and helping them derive maximum value from their  employee benefit plan, including the following:

  • Convenient and regular investing through payroll deduction
  • Direct share purchase
  • Employer investment incentives
  • Tax benefits of an Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSP)
  • Compounding benefits of automatic dividend reinvestment


Every AST-administered plan is based on innovation and efficiency made possible through technology. We maintain a proprietary technology platform designed with our customers’ unique objectives in mind – that can be adapted to meet your specific needs.
