Investing in Ukraine ADRs / Ukrainian Stocks List
A handful of Ukraine ADRs have listings on the OTC and are concentrated in the agriculture, industrial, basic materials and utilities sectors – a legacy of Soviet era industrialization. However, almost all of these Ukraine ADRs appear to not be actively traded and are classified as being part of the OTC’s Grey Market – something that will probably discourage even the most intrepid Western investor or trader who might want to speculate on continued conflict or troubles in the region. Investors interested in investing in Ukraine ADRs should also check out our Eastern Europe ETF list and Eastern Europe closed-end fund list pages as some region wide ETFs or closed-end funds may have exposure to Ukrainian stocks.
Note: If there are any ADRs to add or remove from this list or there are bad links, please write a note in the comments section so it can be fixed. Likewise, adding any other comments or advice would also be appreciated.
