JANUS HENDERSON
GLOBAL DIVIDEND INDEX

 

The company Janus Henderson Investors has released its Global Dividend Index saying that, globally, dividends jumped by 26.3%, year-over-year on a headline basis, recovering to $471.7 billion, only 6.8% below their Q2 2019 level. Dividends paid to investors are projected to hit $1.39 trillion in 2021, reflecting a recovery that’s stronger than expected.
Payouts in the U.K. surged 60.9%, and in Europe climbed 66.4%, while most of the dividend cuts were in emerging markets, the report said, reflecting the delayed impact from lower reported 2020 profits. North America, meanwhile, saw record dividends in the second quarter, driven by Canada. However, payouts in the region had largely held up through 2020, meaning there was little rebound effect.
