American Depository Receipts

A depository receipt is a security that represents ownership in a foreign security.

They provide opportunity for investors in a country to trade or transact on their domestic stock exchanges a security whose underlying is a foreign security. They have the benefit of trading the instrument through their familiar broker in the same way they trade their country's securities.
