Dividends

On 1 March 2016, we announced our intention to pay dividends semi-annually in April and September from 2016 rather than quarterly.

For US and Canadian-resident American Depositary Receipt (ADR) holders, the half year dividend of 3.0p per ordinary share will become 12.0p per ADS (American Depositary Security - representing four shares). The ADR depositary will post the dividend on Monday, 23 September 2019 to ADR holders on record on Friday, 09 August 2019. The ex-dividend date for ADR holders is Thursday, 08 August 2019.

The full year dividend for the year ended 31 December 2018 of 4.0p per ordinary share was paid on Friday, 5 April 2019 to shareholders holding shares on the register on Friday, 1 March 2019 (record date). 

For US and Canadian-resident American Depositary Receipt (ADR) holders, the full year dividend of 4.0p per ordinary share became 16.0p per ADS (American Depositary Security - representing four shares).

  • Bank Mandate Bank Mandate

    The majority of Barclays shareholders have their dividends paid into their bank or building society account. It's safer, quicker and easier for your dividends to be paid directly to you.

    If you lose your cheque, there may be an administration fee to pay when the dividend payment(s) are reissued to you. Please visit shareview.co.uk for more information.

    If you would like to receive your dividends directly into your bank or building society account, please download a Bank Mandate Form and return to Equiniti at the address on the form.

    Alternatively, if you hold 2,500 shares or fewer, you can provide your bank or building society account details quickly and easily over the telephone using Equiniti's contact details.
