Global dividend payouts are expected to slow to their longer-term trend of 5% in 2019, after a stellar 2018, according to asset manager Janus Henderson.

Last year was a difficult one for risk assets. After a 2017 that saw almost all equity markets rise, that reversed and 2018 was one of renewed volatility and challenging macro-economic and geopolitical conditions. As a result, many markets around the world fell in tandem.
