Understanding shares

In this series of 3 videos we will look at the 2 main schemes that allow Unilever employees to buy Unilever shares; SHARES and Sharebuy.

We’ll cover the following frequently asked questions:

  • What are shares?
  • Who is eligible for SHARES and Sharebuy?
  • How do the schemes work, including what it costs you, tax relief, free shares, dividends and changes in the share price?
  • What is the process for joining?
  • How do I keep track of my money?

Please note that these videos were recorded in October 2021 and are based on Unilever's share buying schemes at that time.
