Managing your dividends
You can continue to manage your dividend income online with interactive investor’s UK service.
Dividends are credited to your account in their market currency once they have been received. You will have the choice for each investment to leave this as cash or automatically reinvest it (see more below).
Automatic dividend reinvestment is available for most popular shares (including the FTSE 350) and a range of investment trusts and ETFs. We do not offer automatic reinvestment of any income from unit trusts and OEICs.
To be reinvested, a dividend must be paid into your account in sterling and it must have a value of £10 or more. Dividend investment costs just 99p a trade and this can be taken from the free credit you receive each month from your service plan.
