Hi there. A constant threat among some investors is the delisting of Chinese ADRs on the US exchange. The simplest solution here is for brokers to offer the option to switch shares of the US ADRs to the HK exchange (so BABA would change to 9988). However, Freetrade doesn’t currently offer the HK exchange on the platform.
No ADRs will be delisted until December 2023 at the earliest, as they need to refuse to cooperate for three years running.
So, given that, can the Freetrade team advise on whether they will have access to HK exchange by 2023? And, if so, would you look to switch the tickers from BABA to 9988 if the worst does happen and the ADR ends up being delisted?
