Investing in Jordan ADRs / Jordanian Stocks List
Although Jordan is largely overshadowed by other Middle East countries, there is a Jordanian stock market. Founded by Samih Darwazah in Amman (Jordan) in 1978, Hikma Pharmaceuticals plc (OTCMKTS: HKMPY) is a British multinational pharmaceutical company with headquarters in London that manufactures non-branded generic and in-licensed pharmaceutical products. It is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the FTSE 100 Index. Otherwise, the Housing Bank for Trade and Finance and the Jordan Kuwait Bank appear to have been delisted from the OTC market (where they were lightly traded).
Investors interested in investing in Jordan ADRs should also check out our complete list of Middle East closed-end funds as well as our Middle East/Africa ETF list, Middle East ETF list and Middle East ETF Region Wide lists as some region wide closed-end funds or ETFs may have some exposure to Jordanian stocks.
Note: Stocks delisted from the OTC (whether due to mergers, acquisitions or for other reasons) have been left in the table (as their websites still provide a good feel for the company and the local market) and may still trade on local or important European (e.g. London, Amsterdam etc) or Middle East (e.g. Dubai) stock exchanges. They may also be holdings of country or region specific ETFs or Indices.
