Dividend pay-outs look health says Richard Buxton

UK dividends look in great shape going into 2018, says Old Mutual chief executive Richard Buxton. Silver Rated fund manager Buxton, who runs the Old Mutual UK Alpha fund, is confident that the UK market is through the worst of the cuts to pay-outs, with a few notable exceptions.

“I do not think BT’s (BT.A) dividend is sustainable, but we would probably buy the stock if it cut the pay-out,” he said.
