Tips: Not all ADR support converting to HK stock, please contact customer service to confirm first.
The American depositary receipt (ADR) is a certificate of ownership of the American depositary share (ADS). ADS is priced in US dollars and representing a specified number of shares of a foreign company's stock. The holder of a ADR has the right to convert the ADR to shares of the underlying asset stock.
1) Client needs to submit an email application according to the template;
2) FUTU will send a confirmation email to the client;
3) FUTU will deduct the ADRs and fees in the transfer-out account of the client, and process the conversion;
