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?

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 - 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.

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 ?

    • The mischievous amphibian who became a meme legend? Well, meet Apu, his wide-eyed, optimistic cousin, taking the internet by storm – and now, perhaps, the world of finance. Apu, also known as Peepo or Helper, is a kinder, gentler Pepe variant. Tired of the often-scammy memecoin scene, Apu (or rather, Apu's devoted community) decided to create something different: $APU, a "fairly launched, fully transparent coin" built by and for "all frens." Here's where things get interesting. $APU's narrative is one of resilience and community power. Fueled by the cryptocurrency community's enthusiasm, $APU was initially launched with the best of intentions. However, the dream took a nasty turn when the original developer pulled the rug – a disheartening scenario for many crypto enthusiasts. Today, $APU stands as a testament to community empowerment. It's a beacon of hope for projects facing similar challenges, a reminder that collaboration and resilience can transform setbacks into stepping stones. It's also worth noting that another community-driven memecoin, $MASSA, recently found a home on the Bitget exchange. Could this be a sign of things to come for $APU? What are your thoughts? Does Apu's story inspire you? Can a memecoin truly become a legitimate force in the volatile world of cryptocurrency? Share your thoughts and predictions in the comments below!
    • The price shown on the graph is the price after the IG's fee taken. That is the reason for discrepancy.
    • I am a relatively newbie. I have seen similar and also have seen automated closed position has a loss though the close price I have set was above the price I have bought. After about 6 months with a lot of mysterious losses though my closing price was above the opening price, I discovered this was because of the amount charged for opening/closing a position. This is right below BUY and SELL boxes on the right in very small font. This amount vary from  0.9 to 33 or more depending on the level of trading at the time you open or close. It also happens (god knows why it is set to be so, except that the trader is not watching) when there is a lot of buying and selling going on, like an important news has suddenly been out and the result was not the market expected. As a result, I delete all my automated BUY/SELL values before I stop trading for the day. Remember, the the software is set up to favor the IG, not the retail seller. That is why 70% or more end up in loss.
