The Allianz share is considered by many investors to be a yielding share. This is because the company has been paying out dividends to its shareholders for many years, without interruption, for more than twenty years. Are you interested in the Allianz share and would like to know the exact amount of its dividend? In this article, we offer you to discover all the details you need about the Allianz share dividend with its yield, its history over the last 10 years and its payment and ex-dividend dates.
The current Allianz dividend is the dividend that was paid in 2022 to shareholders as a reward for the results of the financial year 2021.
More precisely, the amount of this dividend was then €10.80 per share. This amount has already been paid to shareholders in May 2022.
It should be remembered that the amount of the dividend that was paid in 2021 to Allianz shareholders in respect of the 2020 financial year was only €9.60. There has been a clear upward trend in this dividend since last year.
Before being paid to shareholders, the Allianz dividend must go through several successive stages. The first step is the calculation of the amount of the dividend by the Board of Directors based on the financial results of the previous year. Thus the dividend paid in 2022 was decided on the basis of the results for 2021.
As is the case for most listed companies in the European Union, Allianz pays out its dividend to its shareholders once a year. Most often, this payment is made in May.
In 2022 for example, the Allianz dividend was detached on 5 May and paid on 9 May.
Of course, we do not yet know the amount of the next dividend that will be paid by Allianz to its shareholders. As mentioned above, this amount will only be calculated once the results for the year 2022 have been published, i.e. in the first quarter of 2023.
The Board of Directors that decides on this amount will then issue a press release to inform the shareholders and the shareholders will have to vote on this dividend at the annual general meeting. Only after this decisive vote, the amount of the dividend will be known and finalized.
As mentioned in the introduction, the Allianz share is considered to be a stable yielding share as the company has been paying a dividend to its shareholders for over 20 years.
