International DPPs

With international investments frequently outperforming US-based investments, international securities are becoming increasingly popular and important for today's forward-thinking investor.  DripDatabase.com provides an up-to-date reference of international Direct Purchase Plans (DPPs).  Most of these plans allow US investors to purchase ADRs (American Depository Receipts) of foreign-based firms.  The ADRs are purchased through the plan, in US dollars, and each represent a share of the foreign stock.  You can get started in any of these plans by simply making a small initial purchase of shares (typically $250).  Once you are enrolled, dividend payments will be automatically applied to purchase additional shares.  You will also be able to optionally purchase additional shares in increments of between typically $50 and $10,000 monthly.  Statements will be sent to you, showing your purchases and holdings.  Many plans also offer online account access.

Below is an organized list (by region and by country) of current DPP offerings.  Check back frequently for additions and changes.  Click on the region to see the actual listing of companies.  Click on each company to see specifics for that offering.
