DEVELOPING INNOVATIVE SYSTEMS AND SERVICES FOR
SHARE PLANS AND INSIDERS
Howells was established in 1991 to provide share scheme administration solutions.
Now in our 30th year, we continue to focus on share plans and data management whilst having expanded to respond to other points of pressure in our clients’ business processes. Insider List Management, Register of Interests and Financial Reporting are just some of the areas where we can assist busy Reward, Finance, HR and Company Secretary departments.
Specialising in delivering agile and flexible systems and services to fit complex requirements, our reputation as leaders in our field is built upon the provision of effective, individual facilities for companies of all types and sizes. It is our personal service that enables Howells to deliver not just a fully-integrated resource, but complete peace of mind.
