Dividends

We are proud to be one of only four investment trusts that has increased its ordinary dividend for more than 50 years.
Our dividend policy

Our current policy is to pay a progressive dividend. We may make use of revenue reserves to support this policy. When we have higher levels of income we may retain part of it or pay a special dividend.

By selecting Stock Pickers with distinctive investment styles, we can continue to focus on both income and growth, with the aim of building on our 50-year plus track record of dividend growth.

We have increased our dividend every year for 54 consecutive years, one of only four investment trusts to do so, and have been awarded the Association of Investment Companies’ Dividend Hero award.*

For more information and a full list of qualifying companies, you can visit the AIC website.
