Why choose CDRs?

No currency conversion

CDRs trade in Canadian dollars, so you don't need to factor currency conversion into your investment decisions.

Manage FX risk

The built-in notional currency hedge mitigates the currency risk associated with foreign investing.

Fractional ownership

While some blue-chip stocks cost hundreds or thousands of dollars per share, CDRs give you exposure at a fraction of the price.

Easy to buy and sell

You can buy and sell CDRs on the platform of your choice, just like regular stocks and ETFs.

40+ companies to choose from

Invest in some of the world's biggest stocks like Tesla, Amazon, Microsoft and more. There's over 40 companies to choose from with more being added all the time.

CDRs in the news

What's the difference between a CDR and a regular stock?

Each CDR represents a variable number of shares of the underlying company. The number of shares is called the CDR ratio, and that ratio gets adjusted daily to account for currency fluctuations. So whether the Canadian dollar goes up or down, the CDR will reflect the performance of the company, and not the currency you bought it in.
