We offer all of our employees the opportunity to apply to our Sharesave Plan, both in UK and internationally, in those countries whereby we have a critical mass of employees. Sharesave is a savings plan combined with the option to purchase shares at the end of a three year period and in 2012 the scheme was extended for the first time to employees in Sri Lanka. In 2014 we achieved a 50% employee take-up for the first time, with consistent participation across pay levels and regions.

The plan was commended at the Employee Share Ownership Awards 2012 hosted by ESOP, the Employee Share Ownership Centre.

Our employee share ownership scheme – Sharesave – is available to all permanent London Stock Exchange Group employees across France, Hong Kong, Italy, Sri Lanka, the UK and the US.
