ADR

American Depository Receipt

A certificate issued by an American bank representing a share of a foreign stock that the bank holds in trust but that is traded on an American stock exchange. An American depository receipt is dollar-denominated and entitles the bearer to any dividends and other benefits associated with the stock underlying it. ADRs can be traded like any other security. ADRs shield investors from foreign exchange risk and any applicable tariffs they would have had to pay if they had bought the stock outright. They also exempt the investor from any other requirements the foreign exchange authority might have levied. See also: International Depository Receipt.
