The ex-dividend day is the first day on which it is no longer possible to buy the shares and qualify for the dividend. Ex-days are almost always a Thursday. The record date is usually one day after the ex-date. The payment day is the day on which the funds are transferred to shareholders.



The data in the table above is a small selection of what’s available on our website. Just go to and click on the dividend calendar box. You can download a full table of ex-dividend dates as an Excel spreadsheet. The dividend calendar is updated every Friday.
