Our dividend policy

The Board’s current policy is to pay a progressive dividend. The Board may make use of revenue reserves to support this policy. When we have unanticipated levels of income we may retain part of it or pay a special dividend.

By selecting complementary equity managers, we can continue to focus on both income and growth, with the aim of building on our 50-year plus track record of year-on-year ordinary dividend growth.

Typically, we pay our dividends at the end of each quarter.
