Dividend Distribution Service

Service ID

According to the UAE Securities and Commodities Authority (SCA) decree, in 2010 the DFM launched its dividend distribution services, which witnessed astounding success in organizing and controlling the dividend process.

This led to a noticeable increase in companies applying for the service the years that followed, tapping into the benefits provided by the DFM, saving the company’s time and costs throughout the dividend process by utilizing the highly trained and experienced competencies at the DFM to set the process accurately and in an organized manner.

The service also supports spreading awareness among investors about their rights as shareholders, activating their roles and bridging the gap between the two parties. In addition to DFM's commitment to process the dividend payments on the specified dates through the investor's preferred payment method, which is iVESTOR Card or Bank Transfer.
