Multi-market securities

Securities listed on one domestic stock exchange may also be listed on other exchanges outside of their domestic market. These multi-market securities may be traded on more than one stock exchange and are eligible for deposit and settlement in more than one CSD.

Customers can trade and settle such securities in the ‘home market’ (generally the issuer’s market), in a ‘remote market’ (a domestic market other than the issuer’s), and in cross-border transactions between the home market and a remote market.
