Investing in Depository Receipts is not the same as depositing money in a bank account as your capital is at risk and you may not get back the full amount that you invested. It may be difficult to sell your investment.

Depository Receipts are traded in euros and dividends, if paid, are in euros. Your total return is therefore subject to the euro-sterling exchange rate. Any dividends are variable and not guaranteed.

Investments are not covered by the Dutch deposit guarantee scheme, however they may be covered by the Investor compensation scheme. For more information on these schemes please read the deposit guarantee scheme and investor compensation scheme page.


Triodos Bank N.V. is a global pioneer of sustainable banking. We have over 30 years of experience in making money work for positive social, environmental and cultural change.

The returns quoted below are in euros and do not take into account the impact of movements in the euro-sterling exchange rate. Movements in the exchange rate can result in the value of your investment falling as well as rising.

Past performance is not a guide to future returns and you may not get back the amount you originally invested.

Depository Receipts should be considered for the long term - around 5-10 years.

You can choose to receive dividends as either cash or additional Depository Receipts, although you may not receive any dividends as they are variable and not guaranteed. If paid, dividends will be converted from euros to sterling and will be subject to the euro-sterling exchange rate.


As Triodos Bank N.V is domiciled in the Netherlands, Dutch withholding tax of 15% will be applied to any cash dividends you receive, for more information please read page 50 of the Prospectus. You may also have to pay UK Income tax on any dividends received according to your individual financial circumstances.

If you elect for additional Depository Receipts you avoid Dutch withholding tax, however additional shares are issued to 3 decimal places which may result in a small amount of cash being forfeited and retained by Triodos Bank N.V.

If you are in any doubt as to the tax treatment of this investment we recommend you speak to HMRC or an accountant. Tax rules can change and depend on your personal circumstances.

Please note that investment decisions must be made on the basis of the information provided in the Prospectus and not only on information provided in this summary.
