What happens to any income from my investments within the HL Fund and Share Account?
An HL Fund and Share Account can be set up to treat income in one of three ways:
Reinvestment: Income will be held within your account and accumulated until it reaches or exceeds £10 per holding, when it will be automatically reinvested, or you can choose your own reinvestment level between £10 and £1,000. Reinvestments are made between the 11th and 21st of each month (or as soon as practicable thereafter). A dealing commission of 1% (£1 minimum, £10 maximum) will apply.
Hold as cash: Income will be held on your account pending your further investment instructions.
Pay out to your nominated bank account: Income will be paid out directly to a nominated bank/building society account. This payment will be made within 10 working days following the end of each month.
The instruction you give will apply to all income paying holdings within your HL Fund and Share Account.
It is not possible to opt for scrip dividends in place of a cash dividend.
