E*TRADE Offers Streamlined Access for Administrators to Leverage Carver Edison’s Groundbreaking ESPP Solution

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

An industry first, administrators on the E*TRADE platform can roll out Carver Edison’s technology to their participants efficiently and effectively, leveraging E*TRADE resources

E*TRADE Financial Corporate Services, Inc. today announced it is helping streamline processes for plan administrators working with Carver Edison, a provider of Cashless Participation, which allows employees to maximize their ESPP contribution with limited payroll deductions.

Stock plan administrators who use Carver Edison can now more easily offer interest-free ESPP loans without changing their workflow. Using E*TRADE’s industry-leading platform1, Equity Edge Online®, plan administrators can seamlessly reconcile and process purchases for ESPPs with Cashless Participation. Administrators can also access comprehensive plan reporting and participants can view their share deposits.

“Carver Edison is a great example of a cutting-edge company that shares our disruptive spirit and vision for the future of equity compensation,” said Scott Whatley, President of E*TRADE Corporate Services. “Incorporating innovative features like these into ESPP programs can be a game-changer for participants. And while plan sponsors are always looking for ways to make these programs even more attractive, it can be challenging to implement them efficiently. So, by working with Carver Edison, we can help plan sponsors drive greater participation in ESPPs, maximizing this valuable benefit without adding undue administrative burden.”

The announcement comes on the heels of Equity Edge Online earning the #1 rating in Loyalty and Overall Satisfaction eight years in a row by Group Five.1 E*TRADE was also the highest rated among full administration plan sponsors for helping participants understand the value of their equity awards and how they can be used to help meet financial goals.
