We process your dividends automatically and they are paid directly to your account with us.
To qualify for a company's dividend payment, you need to have purchased the shares before the ex-dividend date and hold them on that date, but not necessarily until the end of the ex-date.
For example, Nokia (NOKIA) has an ex-date on 30.10.2020. To be eligible for a dividend, you need to have purchased the share on the 29.10.2020 & hold it until 30.10.2020 00:01 GMT+2. After that, the position can be closed and the dividend would still be due.
You will not qualify for the dividend if you buy shares on the ex-dividend date or later, or if you sell your shares before the ex-dividend date.
Fractional shares dividend payments will be split based on the fraction of shares owned, then rounded to the nearest penny.
To qualify for a CFD dividend payment, you must have an open position of the company's instrument until the ex-dividend date. Тhe trade should have been held on the day before the ex-dividend date, but not necessarily until the end of the ex-date. Depending on the direction (short or long) of your position the dividend will be either paid or deducted from your account.
