ADRs (American Depositary Receipts)American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) are issued by US banks.
They represent a specified number of shares in a non-US company whose shares are traded on a US stock exchange. They’re used mainly by American investors who want to receive any dividends or gains in US dollars. They help to reduce administration and duty costs but don’t reduce the inherent investment or currency risks.
