Frequently Asked Questions

What is an American Depositary Receipt (ADR)?

An ADR is a negotiable U.S. certificate representing ownership of shares in a non-U.S. corporation. ADRs are quoted and traded in U.S. dollars in the U.S. securities market. Dividend payments are also paid in U.S. dollars. ADRs were specifically designed to facilitate the purchase, holding and sale of non-U.S. securities by U.S. investors and to provide a corporate finance vehicle for non-U.S. companies.

What are the benefits of ADRs to U.S. investors?

U.S. investors generally prefer to purchase ADRs rather than ordinary shares in the issuer's home market because ADRs trade, clear and settle according to U.S. market conventions. One of the main advantages is the facilitation of diversification into foreign securities. ADRs allow easy comparison to securities of similar companies, as well as access to price and trading information. ADR holders also appreciate receiving U.S. dollar dividend payments (if declared) and receiving corporate action notifications.

How can I buy or sell ADRs?

As ADRs are U.S. securities, most U.S. stockbrokers can assist with the purchase or sale of ADRs.

What is the difference between a registered holder and a beneficial ADR holder?

A registered holder is one whose name appears on the books of the Depositary, as registrar; the registered holder is considered the owner of record. A beneficial holder is one whose holdings are held in another name, such as a broker, bank or nominee.
