Dividend Information

Santander generally pays dividends four times a year, in February, May, August and November. Traditionally, Santander has paid standard cash dividends, but since 2009 has offered its shareholders the Santander Scrip Dividend Scheme for certain payments. A history of past dividend payments and their type can be found here.
