Information about your dividends

Our policy

We will target a dividend pay-out ratio of 40% to 60% of post-tax operating profits.  We expect to pay an interim and a final dividend each financial year.

It is expected that the final and interim dividends will be paid in the approximate proportions of two-thirds (final dividend) and one-third (interim dividend), of the total dividends payable in respect of a financial year, taking into account the underlying cash generation, cash resources, capital position, distributable reserves and market conditions at the time.

The first Quilter plc dividend payment is expected to be the final dividend in respect of the year ended 31 December 2018, which will be paid following approval of the financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2018 at the Annual General Meeting of the Company, currently expected to be held in May 2019.

The Directors expect this dividend to be determined by a pay-out at the lower end of the target range and to reflect the expected split of interim and final dividends.

All key dividend dates such as ex-dividend date, record date and payment date will be published on our website as soon as they are announced.
