Today is a big day for income investors, with a large number of ASX 200 shares going ex-dividend this morning.

When a share goes ex-dividend, it means that the rights to an upcoming dividend payment are now settled.

So, even if you were to sell your shares, you would still be the one that receives the dividend when payday comes around.

It is for this reason that an ASX 200 share will tend to drop when it goes ex-dividend. After all, buyers don't want to be paying for something that they won't receive.

Which ASX 200 shares have gone ex-dividend?

The following 10 ASX 200 shares are among the many trading ex-dividend today:

APA Group (ASX: APA) for its 29 cents per share dividend, which will be payable on 13 September.
