COVID-19 and dividend payments

As a result of COVID-19 the London Stock Exchange has temporarily amended their rules around dividend payments. Ordinarily an issuer must pay cash dividends within 30 days of the record date, however this has been changed to be within 60 days.

It is also possible some issuers may decide not to pay dividends at all, therefore please be aware the information on this page can change at any time up until the dividend is paid and you may not receive the full amount, or any of the dividend amounts shown below.

This dividend diary will provide you with some of the key dividend dates and events for July*, as well as some of the frequently asked questions we receive.
