SAAT – Foundation for the Administration of Triodos Bank Shares
Triodos Bank believes it is 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 N.V. In addition, it exercises the voting rights for the Triodos Bank N.V. shares. The Board of SAAT’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.
