What is the Janus Henderson Global Dividend Index?

The Janus Henderson Global Dividend Index (JHGDI) is the first of its kind, long-term study into global dividend trends. It is a measure of progress that global firms are making in paying their investors an income on their capital. It analyses dividends paid every quarter by the 1,200 largest firms by market capitalisation.

Global dividends jumped 14.5% on a headline basis, easily the fastest increase in any quarter over three years, pushed higher by special dividends. Underlying growth, which adjusts for movements in exchange rates, one-off special dividends and other factors, leapt ahead by 8.4%, the fastest such increase in almost two years.

Hong Kong, Australia, and Taiwan all posted new quarterly records. The US growth remained strong, and the UK rebounded after lagging behind global peers over the last year; China showed a third consecutive year of weakness.
