Hentons Launches Vector, the Future of Employee Ownership Transactions

January 29, 2024

Hentons Corporate Finance, a prominent name in mergers and acquisitions and joint venture with Hentons Accountants, announces the launch of Vector, a dedicated team focused on offering comprehensive solutions in employee ownership transactions.

An Employee Ownership Trust (EOT) is a legal arrangement where a trust holds shares on behalf of employees, fostering ownership, commitment, and alignment with company goals. It offers financial rewards tied to company performance, serves as a succession planning tool, and provides tax advantages for both owners and employees.
With a deep understanding of the e landscape of business transitions and employee ownership transactions, Vector aims to guide entrepreneurs and business owners through the complexities of partial or a complete sale of shares, while prioritising value, legacy, people, confidentiality, and control.

Matthew Milnes, Director at Vector, said, “At Vector, we recognise the significance of aligning financial strategies with the long-term goals and values of our clients. Our expertise in employee ownership trusts (EOTs) and succession planning empowers businesses to navigate evolution while preserving their legacies and fostering employee engagement.”

Vector stands out with its commitment to understanding the unique needs of each client. Chris Sellars, Director at Vector, said, “Our approach is centred around empowering business owners with the knowledge and tools to make informed decisions. Through meticulous attention to detail and personalised guidance, we strive to ensure that every client’s journey towards employee ownership is seamless and rewarding.”

Operating from offices in both London and Sheffield, Vector boasts a team of corporate advisors with over 35 years of experience in the industry, backed by an in-house corporate services legal team.

The launch of Vector marks a significant milestone in Hentons Corporate Finance‘s commitment to providing tailored solutions that drive sustainable growth and succession for businesses across sectors.
