Expanded CDR lineup makes global investing easier than ever for Canadian investors – 35 CDRs now available
TORONTO, November 25, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NEO is proud to welcome CIBC back to the NEO Exchange with a suite of five new Canadian Depositary Receipts ("CDRs") to expand their existing lineup to 35 global companies.
A made-in-Canada innovation for Canadian investors and advisors, CDRs make it easy to invest in some of the world's largest companies – in Canadian dollars. Offered at a fraction of the price per share of the underlying reference share, and with a built-in notional currency hedge, CDRs provide investors with affordable access to foreign stocks while mitigating the currency risk associated with global investing.
The five new CDRs available for trading on the NEO Exchange are listed below:
Honeywell International Inc. Canadian Depositary Receipts (CAD Hedged) – HON
AbbVie Inc. Canadian Depositary Receipts (CAD Hedged) – ABBV
Procter & Gamble Co. Canadian Depositary Receipts (CAD Hedged) – PG
CVS Health Corp. Canadian Depositary Receipts (CAD Hedged) – CVS
United Parcel Service, Inc. Canadian Depositary Receipts (CAD Hedged) – UPS
"In less than a year and a half since launch, CDRs have attracted roughly $1.3 billion in AUM, with clear demand from retail investors, portfolio managers, and financial advisors," said Elliot Scherer, Managing Director and Global Head, Wealth Solutions Group at CIBC Capital Markets. "As we look to make global investing easier for our clients with this industry-first innovation, we continue to add to our line up based on strong investor feedback."
The five new CDRs will add to the current lineup of 30 CDR tickers which are available for trading on the NEO Exchange, including household names such as Tesla, Amazon, Apple, VISA, and more.
"With some of the best-performing blue-chip stocks on the market across financial services, consumer goods, healthcare and technology, it’s no wonder investors and their advisors are choosing to invest through CDRs," added Erik Sloane, CRO of the NEO Exchange. "CDRs are the simplest and most intuitive way for Canadians to access the US public markets. It’s a true Canadian success story and we’re extremely proud to be the listing venue of choice for CIBC."
