Dividend policy
The Board is keen to provide the maximum flexibility for the Investment Manager to fulfil the Company purpose to increase the real wealth and prosperity of shareholders. The Company will continue to pursue a progressive dividend policy but the 12% increase in the interim dividend should not be seen as indicative of a level of dividend growth that is likely to be sustained.
