What is equity compensation?

In short: Equity compensation (or equity comp) is a type of non-cash pay that a company may offer its employees as part of their compensation packages. It entails stock in (i.e. part ownership of) the company — either awarded outright, or offered for purchase at a guaranteed price. 

To learn more (and get personalized next steps), book a complimentary call with one of our financial experts.

What are the different types of equity compensation?

Equity compensation comes in the form of restricted stock units (RSUs), incentive stock options (ISOs), and nonqualified stock options (NSOs).

RSUs are awarded outright and taxed when they vest (i.e. when they officially become yours, depending on your vesting schedule). ISOs and NSOs are offered for purchase with different tax benefits and implications.
