TD Ameritrade, Inc. (“TD Ameritrade”), a broker-dealer subsidiary of TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation (NYSE:AMTD) , today announced a relationship with Equity Administration Solutions, Inc. (EASi) one of the largest equity compensation software-as-a-service companies in the world and a leading provider of administrative support for employee stock plans.

Under the terms of the agreement, TD Ameritrade will handle participant servicing for participating EASi stock plan clients, combining EASI’s streamlined platform for accounting, administration and reporting with TD Ameritrade’s broad array of brokerage services. Plan sponsors will have a seamless, transparent and flexible end-to-end solution, while employees will enjoy an integrated experience with access to their stock plan information, as well as investment tools and resources.

“As part of our commitment to creating innovative solutions for corporate clients and their employees, we uncovered a need in the marketplace for an open-architecture approach to managing employee stock plans,” said Brian Burke, Director of Stock Plan Services at TD Ameritrade. “By working with leading equity administration platform providers such as EASi, we can offer corporate clients a more customizable and transparent solution that combines a top administration platform with our brokerage tools, education and resources so employees can be in a better position to make decisions when it comes to managing their equity compensation.”

“In helping hundreds of clients manage their equity compensation plans, we have learned that an ‘all-in-one’ broker-administrator platform forces companies to compromise in how they manage their employee stock plans,” said Michael Boese, Chief Executive Officer of EASi. “With TD Ameritrade, we have seamlessly integrated our cloud-based administration and reporting platform with their leading brokerage services allowing our clients the best of both worlds. We are thrilled to be working with the TD Ameritrade team and look forward to a very successful relationship.”

Representatives from both TD Ameritrade and EASi will be speaking at the 2014 National Association of Stock Plan Professionals (NASPP) conference next week in Las Vegas, NV from September 29-October 2.
