Dividend adjustments: Shares and Cash Indices (CFD) reflect corporate actions so you will be entitled to dividend payments when going long and will incur dividend charges when going short. If a dividend adjustment applies to shares or cash indices to which your trade relates and your trade was open at the close of business on the last of our trading days prior to the relevant ex-dividend date we will apply a dividend adjustment. In case of CFD trades relating to individual shares or cash indices, the dividend adjustment will be applied as follows:

• Clients holding long individual share CFD or Cash Index positions will be credited an ex-dividend adjustment.
• Clients holding short individual share CFD or Cash Index positions will be debited an ex-dividend adjustment.

Please keep in mind that dividends may also be taxed (if applicable). The Company may terminate or vary the dividend adjustment subject to changes in law, the regulatory system, rates of tax and in particular the withholding tax requirements of the relevant tax authority.
