* ADR fee introduction

ADR (American Depository Receipt) refers to a foreign company's share receipt, and the holder is entitled to receive all dividends and capital gains. The existence of American depositary receipts allows American investors to buy shares of companies in other countries in the U.S. stock market.

1) What is the ADR fee?

Generally, ADR agents (banks and investment banks) buy stocks in overseas stock exchanges, and then sell these shares in the U.S. stock exchanges. ADR fee is charged by the ADR agents for their management, registration, and recording of foreign share receipts. 

2) When and how will it be charged?

Many ADR banks that issue or manage American Depository Receipts (ADR) have stated in their ADR agreements that they have the right to charge fees to cover the administrative costs associated with these securities. In most cases, this fee will be deducted from the common stock dividend of ADR stock (The fee is either deducted from the client's account after the ADR dividend is paid, or it has already been deducted when the securities company receives the dividend). If the company of the ADR shares does not pay dividends, the issuing bank may charge shareholders a fee on a specific record date. If you are a shareholder on this particular record date, ADR fees will be automatically deducted from your securities account. Generally speaking, the average ADR fee is 1 to 5 cents per share. The charge amount and recording date will vary according to ADR requirements.

When there is an upcoming ADR fee, we will notify you by email, APP Push, APP message, 5 trading days before the deduction. If you estimate that the risk control value or available funds would drop below 0 after the deduction, please transfer more funds or manually close the position in advance to avoid forced liquidation.
