US dividend growth slows to post-crisis low

by Alex Crooke

6 months ago

​Global dividends fell to $281.7bn in the third quarter, down 4.0% year-on-year, according to the Henderson Global Dividend Index. This was the weakest performance since the second quarter of 2015. Three main factors are behind the decline. First, special payouts were lower, particularly in the US. Secondly, the third quarter sees a seasonal peak from areas of the world that currently have weaker dividend growth such as emerging markets, Australia, and the UK. And finally, dividend growth in the US has slowed. As the largest contributor to dividends, a slowdown here makes a significant impact. On an underlying basis, which adjusts for exchange rates, special dividends and other factors, the global total was 0.3% lower.

UK dividend growth falls further behind global peers

by 

9 months ago

​UK dividends are falling further behind the world’s other developed markets, according to the Henderson Global Dividend Index, as cuts from some of the UK’s largest listed companies and, for overseas investors, a falling pound take their toll. In underlying terms, UK dividends fell 3.3% year on year in the second quarter, the weakest performance in the G7. Standard Chartered, Anglo American, Barclays and WM Morrison were among those who made steep cuts. On a headline basis, the UK’s US$33.7bn total was 7.7% higher year on year, but that was only thanks to very large special dividends from GlaxoSmithKline and Intercontinental Hotels, among others.
