Notes to editors

Global Depositary Note (GDN)

A debt instrument created by a depositary bank, such as Citibank, that evidences ownership of a local currency-denominated debt security. GDNs emulate the terms (interest rate, maturity date, credit ratings) of particular local currency denominated bonds however they trade, settle, and pay interest and principal in U.S. dollars.

A GDN gives investors exposure to the local currency denominated debt security without having to directly hold that debt security in its local currency.
