Total return

Dividend cover

Dividend frequency

The expected dividend frequency of the company. A = Annual, S = Semi-Annual, Q = Quarterly, M = Monthly.

5yr dividend growth (%) p.a.

Dividend growth over the past 5 years annualised to give a compound percentage rate per year. Figures are based on the last completed financial year, measured as when all dividends for that year have been declared. Special dividends are excluded however dividends paid from capital reserves are included.

Junior ISA

A Junior ISA (JISA) is a special savings account for children with tax benefits. JISAs allow you to save using two main types of investments:

Specialist Fund Segment

The Specialist Fund Segment (SFS) is a peer group segment of the Main Market designed to appeal to alternative funds and their sophisticated investors. The rules governing corporate governance and transparency standards reflect this by replicating EU Directive minimum standards, which also qualifies the market for most investment mandates. The SFS is designed to accept more sophisticated fund vehicles, governance models and security types that are likely to be characteristic of the funds involved.

Revenue reserves

The undistributed income that the company keeps as reserves. Where companies publish retained earnings in place of revenue reserves, we cannot always publish this information. Please be aware that revenue reserves are taken from the company's annual accounts and this may not include the final dividend payment (if applicable), therefore the revenue reserves and dividend cover published may be higher than the actual amounts following payment of the final dividend.
