Depository receipt holders (DRH)
Since our creation, we have been an independent bank. To ensure the special character and mission of our bank remains protected, our shares are held in a dedicated Foundation, which issues depository receipts to anyone that wishes to buy them. Depository receipts are not listed on the stock exchange, but traded on our own platform. As of 2022, we have over 43,000 depository receipt holders.
The Foundation for the Administration of Triodos Bank Shares (SAAT) manages all Triodos Bank NV's shares. To finance the shares, SAAT issues depository receipts. The Board of SAAT, Triodos Bank and its depository receipt holders communicate with, and meet, regularly. This happens informally and formally in meetings like the AGM and in meetings for depository receipt holders in the countries where we are active. Learn more about our governance.
The Supervisory Board oversees and reviews the activities and decisions of the Executive Board, the development of Triodos Bank’s operations, strategy development and the bank’s overall mission. The Supervisory Board also provides advice and guidance the Executive Board. The members of the Supervisory Board are independent; from each other, from the Executive Board, and from any other party or interest that might affect the Board's operation.
