How to manage your account (Options)

This support article explains how to manage your account including settings and viewing your option grant details.

After signing up to Capdesk (see article here if you have not signed up) you can now log in and you will find three headers: Portfolio, Administrated and Viewed.

Your portfolio will show you all the companies that have listed your grants on Capdesk for you to see.

You can select the arrow next to a company's name to see all of your grants with that company. You can then select a grant to open a pull-out window that will display the details of the grant.

The full list of the details available is seen below:

Grant details

Estimated Value:
The value of the grant in your configured portfolio display currency based on an estimated share price value registered by the granting company (if applicable).

These are details of the grant including exercise price and grant/expiry dates.

This section describes your vesting schedule and shows you how many options have currently vested and how many you have left to vest.

Any valuations relevant to your grant that the company has recorded on Capdesk will be displayed here.

Grant Note:
Any notes added by the company will be shown here.

Grant Document:
Any documents uploaded by the company relevant to the grant will be found here, if you have signed a grant online, this is where you could find your signed copy of the agreement.

Here you can see a list of any and all transactions that have been actioned on the grant, including exercises, share splits and lapses.

Execution History:
If you have executed the grant online this should be marked as Issuance Execution Completed.

In addition to viewing your grant, you can add your other investments on Capdesk (if you have invested in other companies). You can find out how to do that here.
