Dividend - paid and then cancelled?


I_Dawg

Question

Hi

Hoping someone can shed some light on this for me. I've got shares in "Sequoia Economic Infrastructure Income Fund Limited" and was paid a small dividend yesterday. However, there is a transaction directly after that has taken this dividend off. It is for the same amount and only clue is "CONTRA" before the dividend withdrawal.

My account is not in debt, and I've not set up any auto-reinvestment features, so I don't know why this has happened. Does any one know, or does anyone know a way to get more info on this? Thanks in advance!

Hi @I_Dawg - I have had a look at your account and can see that there was actually an administrative error which resulted in two dividends being paid, one of which we had to 'contra' (effectively reverse) so that the funds on your account and dividend payment was correct.

I checked this with the corporate actions team and they confirmed the following happened. Our team in the UK checked the dividend and made the manual payment, however the stock also appeared on an automatic payments list which was processed accidently by another team. On realising the div had incorrectly been paid twice, the team went in to rectify the issue. 

I hope this clarifies things but if you have any questions please let me know. You should be able to see the two divs on the 3rd and 4th of this month. Hope this helps.

    • Hi @marksiqi What happens if the stock I am trading delists? If you have an open leveraged position on a stock that delists, we’ll close your position at a level of zero and typically open a new position – called a ‘proceeds line’ – on your behalf which is untradeable, has no price and brings no value to your account. Once the company confirms there is no return to shareholders, which could take years, we will close your proceeds line position at the level of zero. However, we won’t start this procedure as soon as a company announces it is delisting. The stock status will first need to be reviewed by our corporate actions and risk departments. If you own shares in a company that delists on your IG leveraged account, we can close the position completely upon request and thus waive your right to potential future proceeds. On the other hand, if you hold those shares on your IG share dealing account, we can't close the position. This is because when you trade on leverage, you're trading over-the-counter with us - so we're able to take care of things like this in-house. However, when you buy or sell shares in a company, you're trading on an exchange that we have no control over. You can also read the following article for a better understanding: what happens if a stock is delisted.   All the best - MongiIG
