Dividend Information

Dividend Policy

Our dividend policy takes into account the profitability of the business and underlying earnings, as well as the Group's capital requirements and cashflows, whilst maintaining an appropriate level of dividend cover. A total dividend of between 33-50 per cent of profit after tax is paid out each year in the approximate proportion of one-third to be paid as an interim dividend, two-thirds to be paid as a final dividend. This gives us the required flexibility to consider the underlying cyclical behaviour of precious metal prices. Dividends are paid in UK pounds sterling unless shareholders elect to be paid in USD.
