Investing in Puerto Rico Stocks
Technically, there are no Puerto Rico ADRs for the US territory, but there are several Puerto Rico stocks trading on major US stock exchanges like the NYSE and the NASDAQ. All of these companies provide financial services on the island and beyond as some are also serving the Puerto Rican community on the mainland e.g. Popular Inc (NASDAQ: BPOP) has a number of bank branches in New York and New Jersey. Investors interested in investing in Puerto Rico ADRs should also check out our Latin America ETF list, Latin America ETF list (region wide) and Caribbean closed-end fund lists as some region wide ETF and closed-end funds may have exposure to Puerto Rico 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.
