Frequently Asked Questions

Challenger paid a fully franked interim dividend of 17.5 cents per share on 24 March 2020. The company generally pays its final dividend in late September. Whilst there are no guarantees, Challenger has reaffirmed its profit guidance for FY20 and also continued to pay its dividends throughout the GFC. This suggests that Challenger shareholders can be pretty reassured they will receive their final dividend payment come September this year.
