Taking out an ADR

Many non-U.S. companies, which otherwise could not or would find it difficult to trade securities, trade in the U.S. markets as ADRs (certificates or equity securities for foreign shares issued by U.S. banks). They are denominated in US dollars and pay dividends in US dollars (USD).

American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) are marketable securities issued by a bank representing shares in a non-U.S. company. These certificates can be traded in the U.S. on both domestic stock exchanges and over-the-counter (OTC), are priced in U.S. dollars, and generally one ADR represents a number of non-U.S. shares. This gives investors exposure to non-U.S. stocks without having to trade on a local exchange in the local currency. Investors can trade ADRs during U.S. market sessions.
