Simplifying Your Dividend Planning Process

27 March 2020

Many of you will have seen dividends cancelled this year given the current and unprecedented economic environment. If you are still going through the dividend process and navigating the complexities of doing this from home, we have a useful solution for you.

Despite the current environment, over the last few months, Equiniti has been looking at ways to streamline and digitise your dividend planning process.

Working closely with clients, we developed a portal that will allow you to see and manage your full dividend process, from initiating the payment through to approving the funding letter.

What does the portal do?

The portal will house the dividend planning process into one system, which will speed up the process, remove the need for paper and provide you with a clear audit trail of what tasks are complete and what are outstanding.

Within the portal you will be able to:

  • Initiate a new payment
  • Review and approve your timetable
  • Review, amend and approve your proofing documents
  • Review, amend and approve your funding letter

If you would like further information on the portal, please speak with your Relationship Manager.

When will I get access to the new portal?

The dividend team will be in touch three months ahead of your record date to provide you with login details.

To support you we have prepared a user guide and demo video which your Dividend Planner will share with you when providing your login details.

If you have any questions in the meantime or would like to know more about the portal, please don’t hesitate to contact your Relationship Manager or Dividend Planner who can provide further information.

COVID-19 and your dividend

We understand that the current environment may impact your company’s decision to issue a dividend. If you have any questions or require any form of support from us about an upcoming dividend, please contact your Relationship Manager.
