The latest UK Dividend Monitor from Link Asset Services has reported a record year for UK dividends in 2018, rising to a total paid of £99.8bn. This record year for UK dividends was the result of rising profits, slightly better-than-expected special dividends, and a fall in the value of Pound Sterling in the second half of the year.
