October 28, 2019 16:30

What are ADRs?

ADRs, or American Depository Receipts, are negotiable instruments issued by US depository banks that evidence ownership of shares in non-US corporations, and are tradable via US exchanges, such as the Nasdaq and NYSE.

Prior to 1990, most ADRs were issued for companies from developed courtiers, such as

the UK, Australia, and Japan. However since 1990, more and more firms from emerging

countries such as Chile, Mexico, Brazil, India and China have started issuing ADRs, and emerging economies accounted for one third of the total ADRs in circulation by the end of 1990s.
