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.

What are Depository Receipts?

Depository Receipts represent shares in Triodos Bank. They are designed to protect the mission and independence of Triodos.

If you choose to purchase Depository Receipts you will be supporting Triodos Bank N.V. and our mission to use money for positive good by helping us raise the capital needed to operate and grow the bank.

All of Triodos Bank's ordinary shares are held in a special trust called the Foundation for the Administration of Triodos Bank Shares. The Foundation controls all the voting rights conferred by the shares, ensuring that decisions about financial profit are never made at the expense of our social and environmental goals.

The Foundation issues Depository Receipts to investors who share and want to support our goals.

Details such as the countries we operate in, members of our Executive Board and Depository Receipt trading volumes can be found under the 'details' tab.

How do they trade?

Depository Receipts cannot be converted into ordinary shares and are not listed on a stock exchange. However, Triodos Bank N.V. maintains an internal platform for trading, although trading may only be available on a limited basis. Investors may have to wait for a buyer to become available before they can sell, please refer to the Prospectus for further information.

Depository Receipts trade on a weekly basis and we submit all applications to buy and sell every Tuesday. Trades are then confirmed by our head office in the Netherland's on Wednesday with contract notes confirming the price and trade date sent the business day after the trade has completed, which is typically each Monday or the next working day in the case of a bank holiday.

In case more redemptions than purchases are received, Triodos Bank can buy back up to 2% of Depository Receipts in issue. If redemptions exceed 2% of Depository Receipts in issue, investors may have to wait before they redeem their holdings.


We charge 0.5% of the value of the transaction with a minimum charge of £5 to buy and sell Depository Receipts.

This charge is either paid up front when buying Depository Receipts or collected from your sales proceeds if selling. There are no other charges applicable to Depository Receipts.

Who is eligible to purchase them?

Depository Receipts can be purchased by UK residents aged 18 or over, who are not US Persons or by Organisations registered in the UK.  If you are representing an Organisation find out more on our: Organisational Investor page.

Before you can apply for Depository Receipts you must complete an Appropriateness Assessment. This will help us understand your knowledge and experience of these types of investments and confirm the level of risk that you are willing and able to take.
