Investment Plans

Plan Services & Administration

Our suite of investment plans are offered by industry leading experts that can guide you through the complexities of SEC filings, compliance, and regulatory infrastructure to find the best plan for your company, shareholders, investors and employees. 

Each industry and situation opens new options and creates a unique path to achieve your goals, and it takes an expert to navigate successfully.

  • Direct Stock Purchase Plans (DSPP): if you’re looking to gain stability in your shareholder base and offer them an affordable way to build equity in your company, a carefully crafted DSPP can help. When stock is purchased directly, versus through a broker, it’s held for an average of 8-11 years, versus with a broker at 18 months.  This plan can be offered through an EQ sponsored plan or through your S-3 registered plan.
  • Dividend Reinvestment Plans (DRIP) allow your investors the opportunity to reinvest their cash dividends by purchasing additional full and fractional shares with their dividend.
We know the most valuable asset in your company is your team.
