CDRs offer Canadian investors affordable access to foreign stocks while mitigating currency risk
TORONTO, March 28, 2023 – NEO is proud to announce that CIBC has returned to the NEO Exchange with a suite of 6 new Canadian Depositary Receipts™ (“CDRs”), bringing the current lineup to 41 global, blue-chip companies.

- Boeing CDR (CAD Hedged) – BA
- Chevron CDR (CAD Hedged) – CHEV
- Citigroup CDR (CAD Hedged) – CITI

This latest suite of CDRs adds to the existing lineup of 35 CDR tickers which are available for trading on the NEO Exchange, including household names such as Tesla, Amazon, Walmart, VISA, and more.
