Please see the expected dividend adjustment figures for a number of our major indices for the week commencing 11th October 2021. These are projected dividends and likely to change. IG cannot be held responsible for any changes made.
Dividends highlighted in red include a special dividend, therefore some or all of the amount will not be adjusted.

Dividend adjustments due to be posted on a bank holiday will usually be posted on the previous working day. 

If you have any queries or questions on this please let us know in the comments section below. For further information regarding dividend adjustments, and how they affect  your positions, please take a look at the video.

FTSE 100 Price Outlook: Global Stock Market Rally May be Short-Lived

Several factors are lifting stock markets near term, including hopes that an agreement on the US debt ceiling is close, Putin’s offer to stabilize the world energy markets and a potential meeting of Xi and Biden.
