Episode 1: Equity in a Post-Pandemic World
The pandemic changed the way we do business. It also changed the equity compensation landscape. In October, Chris and John caught up with Terry Adamson to discuss what they’ve seen in the last 18 months and whether these new trends will stick around.
Terry, otherwise known as Mr. Relative TSR, has designed over 800 global employee stock purchase plans and is a former Global Practice Leader for the insurance giant, AON, where he oversaw all of their equity and governance services.
Episode 2: What’s New for 2022: Equity, Tax and Legislation
As we say goodbye to 2021, Chris and John look at what’s come in the year ahead. Joining Chris and John is Jennifer George – attorney and partner at PwC. From potential changes in Capital Gains Tax, a rise in employee migration, and possible SALT deductions, to the future of the traditional IPO and the emergence of new remote working policies, Chris, John and Jennifer share their predictions for the next 12 months.
Jennifer specializes in the tax and legal complexities of offering employee equity plans on a global scale. She has worked with thousands of private and public US multinationals – helping them overcome the obstacles of providing employee benefits overseas – with a particular focus on plan structure and design and US equity tax.
