SGSS is henceforth accompanying the Getlink group, formerly Eurotunnel, with the overall management of its employee shareholding plans.


Getlink, a European public company that holds the concession to manage and operate the Channel Tunnel through to 2086 and a major player in transport infrastructures, has chosen Societe Generale Securities Services (SGSS) to accompany its long-term loyalty schemes.

The development of employee share ownership represents a major pillar of Getlink’s policy to align the interests of all the Group’s stakeholders.

Getlink has chosen SGSS to accompany it across its entire long-term incentive scheme scope, which includes stock options, free share plans and free preference share plans.

“Beyond our ability to provide expertise regarding a global solution based on a set of value-added services, SGSS also stands out through its digital offer: the dedicated Sharinbox website made available to its clients by SGSS allows Getlink’s senior management to steer all of its employee share ownership plans in a totally secure manner and allows employees to manage, in an autonomous manner, their holdings and their transactions”, says Richard Roger, Head of Business Development, Banks and Corporates. “Similarly, SGSS is again illustrating, through its services offering that includes the management of free share and preference share plans, its determination to innovate and meet the market’s needs”.

This mandate became effective on 5 September, 2018.
