Despite another record quarter for payouts, global dividend growth is being dragged down by falling corporate profits, according to the latest Janus Henderson Global Dividend Index.

Dividend payouts hit $355 billion in the third quarter, a 2.8% headline rise, or an increase of 5.3% once exchange rates and other factors are taken into account. Janus Henderson predicts that worldwide dividend income will reach $1.43 trillion in 2019 - up 5.4% from a year ago, but slower than the 8.5% growth achieved in 2018.
