What is ESOP?

As there are increasing number of FinTechs within the market, compensations offered to FinTech talent are similar at startups and big companies. FinTech startups are using Employee Stock Option Plans (ESOPs) as their key differentiator to attract and retain top talent.

ESOPs are often misunderstood as ‘a piece of paper’ but it has become a common way for employees to ‘own’ a part of the business and have a direct impact on the business’ success. ESOP is an innovative liquidity tool that provides flexibility for shareholders, tax advantages for the FinTech and an opportunity for employees to grow their retirement assets.
