SAAT - Foundation for the Administration of Triodos Bank Shares
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. SAAT's Board of Management's voting decisions are guided by the Bank's ethical goals and mission, its business interests, and the interests of the depository receipt holders. Triodos Bank depository receipts are not listed on any stock exchange. Instead, Triodos Bank maintains its own platform for trading in depositary receipts.Josephine de Zwaan, ChairMarjatta van BoeschotenSandra Castañeda ElenaFrans de ClerckWillem LagewegMike Nawas Read more about the SAAT members ›
Depository receipt holders
Triodos Bank is since the establishment in 1980 an independent bank. To ensure the special character and mission of our bank we do not have shareholders but depositary receipts holders. The Board of SAAT, Triodos Bank and its depository receipt holders engage with each other regularly. This happens both informally and formally through meetings like the General Meeting and meetings for depository receipt holders in the countries where Triodos Bank is active. There are more than 31,000 certificate holders and most of them are privately owned. There is also a number of institutional certificate holders with an interest of 3% or more (they are represented in our Annual Report). Certificate Holders may never own more than 10% of all certificates issued. The certificates are not listed on the stock exchange.
Depository receipt holders are entitled to vote at the General Meeting of depository receipt holders. Each depository receipt holder is limited to a maximum of 1,000 votes. The General Meeting of depository receipt holders appoints the members of the Board of SAAT, based on its recommendations. These recommendations must be approved by Triodos Bank's Executive Board and Supervisory Board.
