My Diageo Shares
Become a Diageo shareholder by taking part in our tax efficient employee share plans. Our share plans are designed to motivate you and help you build a shareholding in Diageo. In return you benefit from the Company’s success through potential share price growth. Normally you won’t have to pay any income tax on any profit that you make (as long as you meet the holding periods and rules linked to the relevant plan).
Share Incentive Plan (SIP)
The SIP gives UK employees a couple of ways to take a stake in Diageo. Each year you have the opportunity to receive Freeshares which are calculated based on Company performance. You can also grow your investment by taking part in the monthly Sharepurchase plan and buying shares every month from your pre-tax salary. On top of that, Diageo will give you one Sharematch share free for every two that you buy through Sharepurchase.
Save for the future by taking part in this simple savings programme and putting money aside each month directly from pay. Once you’ve completed your savings (usually over 3 or 5 years) you can choose to buy Diageo shares at a discounted price, or you can simply take back your savings.
Diageo’s share plans are strictly governed by the plan rules and applicable legislation. For more information about Diageo’s employee share plans go to the SIP or Sharesave sections where you will find information about the plans and details about how and when you can enrol.
