Financial Benefits

Clients are entitled to receive the following benefits:

  • Dividends
  • Voting Rights
  • Other Rights

Clients should be aware, however, of the restrictions on foreign ownership of Thai companies.  Foreign shareholding limits apply to every stock listed on the Stock Exchange of Thailand. Most listed companies limit foreign ownership to a maximum of 49%, except those in the banking and finance sector, which generally permit only a 25% foreign holding.

To ensure that clients receive full financial benefits from investing in the Thai stock market, they should hold an account according to their residential status: foreigners should hold "Foreign Registered Stocks" or NVDRs (Non-voting Depository Receipts), while Thais should hold "Local Registered Stocks."  NVDRs provide all financial benefits; i.e., dividends, right issues and warrants, except voting rights at shareholder meetings.  (For more information, access the front page of our website at "New Feature – NVDR."

Note that foreign shares of some stocks might not be available due to a lack of liquidity. Clients have the option to buy local shares and later inform KT ZMICO that they wish to convert them to foreign shares. Conversion can be completed, however, only when a foreign shareholding is available.

Depending on liquidity, clients holding foreign shares have the option to sell them on the local board.  Conversion from the foreign to local board can be completed within one working day after notification.  The conversion fee is THB 50.00 per application for each company.  For more information on share conversion, please contact your Marketing Officer.

When KT ZMICO acts as a custodian, we will inform the securities registrar, the Thailand Securities Depository Company Limited (TSD), the identities of shareholders as of the book closing date.

NVDR

DEFINITION

A Non-Voting Depository Receipt (NVDR) is a trading instrument issued by Thai NVDR Co., Ltd., a subsidiary wholly owned by the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET).  NVDRs are automatically regarded as listed securities on the SET.

Benefits: To eliminate foreign investment barriers, such as foreign investment limits and impediments for institutional investors.

Investors will be entitled to receive financial benefits; i.e., dividends, right issues and warrants, in the same manner as if they invested in an ordinary share. However, voting rights are not applicable for NVDR holders.

Trading Procedure

Investors who wish to trade NVDRs may send a request either via a marketing officer or via our online trading platform by specifying “NVDR” in the Trustee ID column when placing the order.

NVDR price quotes will be referred from the local board of the underlying stock. The price is exactly the same as that of the corresponding counter on the local board. In short, NVDR orders will be executed on the local board.

Guidelines: On any book closing date, KT ZMICO will submit a shareholder report to the Thailand Securities Depository Co., Ltd. (TSD). Clients are advised to hold stocks registered according to their "Resident Status" before XD (ex-dividend) or XR (ex-right) posting dates. In other words, foreigners should hold either "foreign" registered stocks or NVDRs, while Thais should hold "local" registered stocks.

Foreign investors who desire voting rights are advised to hold "foreign" shares only. Securities trading must be conducted on the corresponding board only:

Securities Board

  • Foreign Board
  • Main Board (local board)
  • NVDR Board (local board)
