13 October 2020 - Gating amount changes
On 13 October 2020, Triodos Bank resumed trade of its Depository Receipts. Since then Depository Receipt holders have been able to buy and sell Depository Receipts.
The pattern of sales and purchases that is emerging demonstrates that there is both an appetite to sell as well as to buy new DRs. The level of sell orders is not yet fully compensated by the level of buy orders. The second wave of COVID-19 infections, more severe and sooner than expected, is understandably an important factor for many DR-holders when considering whether to buy or to sell.
To facilitate transactions in a controlled way, the total value of Depository Receipts that may be offered for sale by any Depository Receipt holder can be restricted. In order to create more time for new purchases to materialise and to restore a balanced trading pattern, Triodos Bank has decided to restrict the maximum value of the weekly amount that may be sold per investment account. From Tuesday 27 October 2020, 9.00 hrs CET, the maximum value of the amount of Depository Receipts which can be sold per investment account per week is set at EUR 1,000.
We will monitor the sales and demand patterns carefully and may change this amount again in future. There is no restriction on buy orders.
