Who We Are and What We Do

ifs ProShare has been the voice of employee share ownership since 1992 when we were established by HM Government, a group of FTSE 100 companies and the London Stock Exchange to promote wider share ownership. Today, we focus solely on helping to promote employee share ownership in the UK and are the voice of employee share plan practitioners and professionals.
