How will I know if I am entitled to a dividend?

We will send you a secure message when your dividend has been allocated to your account. Your entitlement is usually triggered by owning shares before the ex-date.

Ex-dates are the dates announced by the company and the London Stock Exchange as a market entitlement point. It is the date that a company share goes ‘ex-dividend’ 'or ex-rights', which in means if you buy a stock while it is quoted 'ex', you will not be entitled to receive the next dividend payment, or new shares under a rights issue, open offer or bonus issue.
