William Hill provides L-tip advice

William Hill provided financial advice sessions for employees with options in its long-term incentive plan (L-tip) which matured last month.

The scheme, which was introduced in 2003 after the company floated, was open to around 90 staff, mainly at executive level. They were all eligible to attend the group seminar sessions provided by independent financial advisers Clarity.

Iain Ross, group HR manager, said: "L-tips can sometimes be fairly complicated and we wanted to provide individuals with some information in terms of the options that were open to them."
