Global Depositary Receipts (GDR) and listing

– Description

Global Depositary Receipts (GDRs) are financial instruments issued by a financial institution (most of the time a bank) outside the country where the issuing company was registered. GDRs represent ownership of a certain number of shares in a foreign entity and are traded on international stock exchanges.

The GDRs are denominated in a currency other than the currency of the issuing company’s jurisdiction of registration. GDRs give the option to the investors to invest in foreign companies without needing to purchase shares directly on a foreign stock exchange and represent a mechanism for the issuing company to increase its global capital whereas it allows the investors to diversify their portfolios on a global scale irrespective of the market.

Our team of financial advisors can assist in choosing the most befitting depository bank to match the investment purpose of the client. Some of our experience with assisting clients in issuing GDRs include the request for listing in the London, SIX Swiss and Hong Kong Stock Exchanges.
