Henderson Opportunities Trust plc


Henderson Opportunities Trust aims to achieve capital growth in excess of the FTSE All-Share Index from a portfolio of primarily UK investments. The trust has a secondary objective of delivering income growth for shareholders over time.

One of the main advantages of investment trusts is the ability to retain surplus income to create revenue reserves. Henderson Opportunities Trust can add to these reserves in profitable years and pay them out in the leaner years, thereby smoothing the level of the dividend payments when appropriate.

Dividends are paid in March, June, September and December.

Q1 Interim Dividend

On 7 March 2024, prior to the share split being approved by shareholders, the Board declared an interim dividend of 7.5p per Existing Ordinary Share for the year ended 31 October 2024. As the share split has now become effective the interim dividend equates to 1.5p per ordinary share of 5p each. The aggregate dividend to be paid for every five shares held post share split remains the same (i.e. 7.5p) as if one ordinary share of 25p each had been held. The dividend will be paid on 20 June 2024 to shareholders registered at the close of business on 17 May 2024. The Company’s shares will go ex-dividend on 16 May 2024.
