Dividends

FTSE 100: None

FTSE 250: Virgin Money, Endeavour Mining, Greencoat UK Wnd, LXi, Renewables Infrastructure Group

Dividends are applied after the close of the previous day’s session for each market. So, for example, the FTSE 100 goes ex-dividend on a Thursday, but the adjustment is applied at the close of the previous day, e.g. Wednesday. The table below shows the days in which the adjustment is applied, not the ex-dividend days.
