US Dollar Notes

Global dividends are expected to be $10 billion ahead of forecasts for 2018, after the strongest first quarter on record, according to asset manager Janus Henderson.

Dividends around the globe rose 10.2% on a headline basis to $244.7 billion, the Janus Henderson Global Dividend Index revealed. Though that headline growth number was flattered somewhat by a weaker US dollar, underlying growth still stood at an “encouraging” 5.9%.
