What’s an ADR and How Does it Work in the Market?

ADR stands for American Depositary Receipt. It’s a certificate issued by a U.S. bank representing a certain number of shares of a foreign company’s stock. These certificates trade on U.S. stock exchanges just like any other domestic stock.

Here’s How ADRs Work:

  • A foreign company can partner with a U.S. bank to issue ADRs. The bank will purchase shares of the foreign company’s stock and hold them in custody.
  • The bank then issues ADRs representing these shares. Each ADR typically represents one or more shares of the foreign company’s stock.
  • Investors can buy and sell ADRs on U.S. stock exchanges like the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) or the Nasdaq.
  • When an investor buys or sells an ADR, they are actually buying or selling shares of the foreign company’s stock, but they are doing so without having to directly deal with the foreign stock exchange or currency conversion.
