Week commencing 16 May

FTSE 250: Murray Income Trust, Spectris, PageGroup, Centamin, FDM Group, Bellway, Virgin Money, Witan Investment Trust, Hipgnosis Songs Fund

Dividends are applied after the close of the previous day’s session for each market.

The table below shows the days in which the adjustment is applied, not the ex-dividend days.
