Missing dividend

Guest tjw




I have a holding (an ETF) that paid a dividend on 22nd December.  It's now 29th December and the payment still hasn't been posted to my IG share trading account.  Is there a reason it is taking so long?  or is there a problem?

Hi - when a dividend is paid it will go to our prime broker first (for example Citi) who will then send the funds over via a BATS transfer. This usually take a couple of working days, however because of the recent holiday season it will take longer. As soon as we've received the funds you should see it posted on your IG account as a cash value, and you'll be notified via the overnight statement. I believe these funds should be with you very shortly. 


I hope this clarifies things and apologies for the delay.

It's now the 4th January and this still hasn't reached my account. I know it was paid out by Van Eck on 22nd December. 


It's been nearly 2 weeks now.  I'm fairly new to IG but I'm thinking it doesn't normally take this long?

Hi - No problem, thank you for responding, I'm not sure whether you received my PM last Thursday.


The etf is EGPT, the administrator is Van Eck.  I've held since May 2017 so am fully entitled to the year end dividend.


The dividend is:

Year   Ex-Date    Record-Date    Payable-Date    Dividend Income*
2017  12/18/2017    12/19/2017    12/22/2017    $0.2530


It's the 8th January and the payment still hasn't shown up.


With other brokers I've always received dividend payments pretty much straight away. Do you still think this is slow processing (by IG) or is there a problem?


Thank you...

GKP released dividend on 2 July but was not credited in to my IG account.Contacted helpdesk as well as corporate action team and got reply after two days that GKP did not give any dividend for past 18 months. So much awareness on part of IG. I had written that I got same dividend from X.O. (Jarvis group).

Copy of RNS was provided.Chatted three times without any resolution. Is there any hope ?

    • 07 February 2023 Spot Gold The price of gold has extended its pullback from overbought territory over the last week and has found some near-term support at the 50-day simple moving average (50MA) (green line). Our preference remains to look for long entry on a bullish price reversal. A bullish reversal might be considered if we can see price closing above the 1875 level, provided that the 50MA is not broken with a price close below. Should the 50MA level be broken and the price reversal not confirm, 1820 becomes the next downside support target from the move. In this scenario we not looking to short gold but would rather be looking for a bullish price reversal closer to this level for long entry once again. Should either of these scenarios manifest we will update our guidance accordingly with resistance targets and stop loss considerations. Source: IG charts       Brent Crude Oil The bearish reversal off the 8770-level guided in our previous note has yielded a significant decline, although fallen short of the 7760-support target. The price now looks to be rebounding from oversold territory. Traders who have been short might consider this an indication to exit their trades. The longer-term trend bias is still considered down and should a bearish price pattern emerge before this level, new short entries might be considered. In this scenario a close above the 8770 level might be used as a stop loss consideration, while targeting a move back towards the support low at 7760 once again. Only on a move / close above the 8770 level would the longer-term trend bias be reassessed, and long trades reconsidered Source: IG charts         Our weekly technical report is compiled by in-house senior market analyst, Shaun Murison.
