INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS

These shares are issued in the U.S. and registered in different countries, thereby making them foreign securities. They provide shareholders across the globe with equal corporate rights.

Global registered shares should not be confused with American depositary receipt (ADRs) or global depositary receipts (GDRs), which are domestic securities representing a foreign (outside the U.S.) interest.
