Triodos Bank believes it's crucial that its mission and identity is protected. As a result, all Triodos Bank's shares are held in trust by SAAT - the Foundation for the Administration of Triodos Bank Shares. SAAT then issues depository receipts for Triodos Bank shares to the public and to institutions. These depository receipts embody the economic aspects of the shares of Triodos Bank NV. In addition, it exercises the voting rights for the Triodos Bank NV shares.
The depository receipts are not listed on any securities exchange. Instead, Triodos Bank maintains a platform for transactions against net asset value for the depository receipts. This means that, generally speaking, depository receipts can be bought and sold on a weekly basis. Large stakes may take longer. Situations may occur where it is not possible to redeem depository receipts.
