What is the real value of my shares?
Are stocks and shares part of a new job offer? Stocks and shares are often part of the wider package with startups and scale-ups. But what are they worth?
Learn what questions to ask and calculate to understand the real value of what is being offered to you.
Of course, you won’t be able to predict how a company will evolve, but you can get a really good indication of the real value of your benefits package and whether or not you should be asking for a higher base salary, bonus or commission than blindly trusting a random number of shares being made available to you.
Using my simple stocks and shares calculator will put you in a stronger negotiating and decision-making position.
Once you know their value, you should consider the potential time until you can vest those shares. Are you planning on staying long-term or seeing the company through to a potential IPO or Exit?
