RM2 was formed in 1991 by Roy MacKenzie as a remuneration management consultancy (hence "RM2"), specialising in profit-related pay, a government-backed scheme to encourage companies to include employees in profit sharing schemes.
In the late 1990s, the two successor owners, Geoffrey Bond and Colin Paterson moved the business into employee share schemes. Colin and Geoff retired in 2011 and RM2 is now in transition to full employee ownership.
In the last 26 years, RM2 has helped design and install more than 1,150 employee share schemes for UK companies of all shapes and sizes, with many great success stories. As a result, we're often called upon to provide expert comment or to contribute to policy development by successive governments.
In 2015, we extended our services to help business owners realise value and benefit employees by selling to Employee Ownership Trusts.
We have the most experienced team of advisers dedicated to private company employee share schemes in the UK. We have been recognised by industry bodies such as ifs ProShare for the quality of our work, winning numerous awards.
We understand that a 'one-size-fits-all' approach to share plans will rarely meet a client's objectives and we work in partnership with you every step of the way.
Our team has been involved in the design of Share Incentive Plans ("SIP") and Enterprise Management Incentives ("EMI") legislation (and other government sponsored employee share plans) and in commenting on guidance, policy and market practice relating to employee share ownership.
Clients of the firm are found in all industry sectors and include both public and private companies together with subsidiaries of UK and overseas listed companies.
We have more years' experience in advising private company employee share schemes
and employee ownership trusts than any other team in the UK
