What are Depository Receipts?
Depository Receipts represent shares in Triodos Bank. They are designed to safeguard the mission and independence of Triodos Bank.
All of Triodos Bank's ordinary shares are held in a special trust called the Foundation for
the Administration of Triodos Bank Shares. And this trust controls all the voting rights
conferred by the shares, ensuring that decisions about financial profit are never made
at the expense of Triodos Bank's social and environmental goals.
Depository Receipts are issued by the Foundation, and held by investors who want to
own a stake in a world leading sustainable bank. Depository Receipts are not listed on any stock exchange. But you can buy and sell them, through an internal market, which is euro-denominated. The transfer of Depository Receipts is subject to restrictions. The internal market for Depository Receipts depends, among other things, on outstanding demand for and offer of Depository Receipts. Trading in Depository Receipts may therefore only be possible on a limited basis and investors may have to wait before they can sell. Please refer to the Prospectus for further information.
Investment in the underlying investment instrument is intended to be for the long term and income from your investment may fluctuate. Investing in Depository Receipts is not the same as investing money in a bank account as your capital is at risk and you may not get back the full amount that you invested. Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance. It may be difficult to sell or realise your investment, or to obtain reliable information about its value or other risks to which it is exposed and you may not get back the full amount invested.
Depository Receipts are denominated in euro, and dividends are paid in euro. The return on investments you make in sterling is therefore also subject to movements in the exchange rate between euro and GB pounds.
