Washington H. Soul Pattinson and Co. Ltd (SOL), commonly known as ‘Soul Patts’, is an Australian investment house with a portfolio that comprises a diverse range of industries.

With traditional roots in pharmacy, Soul Patts has branched out since listing on the ASX in 1903 to have investments in natural resources, building materials, telecommunications, retail, and agriculture, amongst others.

Remarkably, Soul Patts has never failed to pay a dividend to shareholders since listing on the ASX. What’s more, this dividend has increased every year since 2000, a feat achieved by only one other ASX share, Ramsay Health Care Limited (ASX: RHC).
