Dividends

FTSE 100: Taylor Wimpey, WPP, Spirax-Sarco, Tesco

FTSE 250: Howden Joinery, NCC, Close Brothers

Dividends are applied after the close of the previous day’s session for each market. So, for example, the FTSE 100 goes ex-dividend on a Thursday, but the adjustment is applied at the close of the previous day, e.g. Wednesday. The table below shows the days in which the adjustment is applied, not the ex-dividend days.
