Shares and Cash Indices (CFDs) reflect corporate events so you will be entitled to a dividend payment, if you have an open long position on the shares in question, and if you open a short position, a value equal to the dividend will be written off. If the dividend settlement relates to the Shares and Cash Indices which you trade and which were opened no later than on the day before the ex-dividend day, the company will apply the dividend settlement. In the case of CFD trades with individual shares, dividend settlement will be used as follows:
Clients holding long positions of individual shares (CFDs) and cash indices will be credited with dividends based on ex-dividend settlement.
Clients holding short positions of individual shares (CFDs) and cash indices will be deducted from dividends based on ex-dividend settlement.
Please note that dividends may be subject to tax. The Company may terminate or change the settlement of dividends, in particular on the basis of changes in the law, changes in the regulatory system, tax rates or withholding tax requirements to the relevant tax administrator.
