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.

The Santander Dividend Re-investment Plan

When Santander pays a standard cash dividend, you can use the funds to buy more shares by joining the Santander Dividend Re-investment Plan (the DRIP). For more information about the DRIP, click here.

Receive cash dividends directly into your bank account

You can arrange payment of your dividends directly into your bank account by postal instruction or online. This is an easier, faster and safer way to receive your cash dividend payments than receiving them by cheque. For more information about how to instruct this, click here.
