Mixture of income payers and speculative. In c. 5 years (because of age), I’ll drop the speculatives and put their proceeds into income generators. buy the dips and hold for income is my approach, I don’t really have the time or inclination to trade my way to greater capital.

78 generate income, 30 do not generate income.


Outside of throwing it all in an ETF or global IT who really has the time to actually research hundreds of stocks? So i get the point of not trading your way to greater returns, i think its probably a bad idea for most people.

At the moment id be best investing in growth stocks (though id likely go towards ITs, or ETFs for the most part) but for income ive been likening SAIN and their approach to generating stable income (and reasonable growth) in the long term. its the only one on my long term list atm.

my dividends average Β£2 a month at the moment :sweat_smile: I like your upcoming May though, that would pay my mortgage for the month.

At the moment, all income in ISA in reinvested, nothing taken out. Monthly Premium Bond wins (10 months in the year for last 5 years) also transferred into ISA and invested.

One day, the flow will be outbound instead of inbound.

Freetrade need to have setup regular withdrawal feature by then (i.e. withdraw x% of previous calendar month income on a given day in the month). I hope to take 75% of the monthly income out and reinvest 25% to offset inflation. The percentage can be adjusted as global issues dictate.


Anyone else missing notifications of dividends paid Friday ? had the money paid but no email or anything in the app.

Yes, and for Thursday. They seem to be delayed but I’m finding the emails and notifications are slowly coming in.

Does anyone else have a discrepancy of the total amount they have in their ISA account. They have accounted for the cash I have invested but the dividends given to me have not been accounted for and it’s a large sum?

How do we know what shares pay out dividends?

How is it paid out via freetrade?

Just to expand upon my question,

I have several different shares already but not sure if any pay out dividends.

How would I find this out?

How would I claim anything owed?


Interest, income (e.g. dividends) and capital gains don’t apply/get included to the Β£20000 yearly limit you can put in ISAs.
So that Β£20000 limit is just the cash you put in, see the Gov and Freetrade explainers below for more details

The most reliable source is the website/s of the companies you’re invested in, these would indicate any dividend payments that would be paid or have been paid.

You could quickly find this by doing a search in Google, so if I was looking for dividend information I would search β€œLegal and General investor relations dividends” (or insert other company name) including investor or investor relations usually filters the results down to the right section of their websites, I get this as the second result -

Freetrade also explain dividend payments, how they pay them into your GIA/ISA/SIPP and notify you here - How are dividends paid on Freetrade?

I like the website dividendmax. I’ve got a free account with them and can add a list of notifications for my shares. I get an email whenever a dividend is declared and you can look up the profile of the company to see when the next dividend is due and how much it will be.


Interesting strategy - not one I’d considered previously, as I had in my mind to take out a set amount from divis and leave the rest as cash as a buffer for β€˜leaner’ months. This has got me thinking, cheers! :smiley:

I actually ended the month very strong and had my biggest dividend month so far. This is not provided to boast - it is used as motivation for the small time investors like myself - my first month (Jan 2020) was Β£0.14! I just had a Β£95.00 month.


Good work I’d love a Β£95 month

Keep doing the small things properly and you will get there :slight_smile:


Indeed, it starts off small but keep at it over the years and it builds up - here’s my progress from over the last 9 years (for Feb):



So exciting :joy:
I’m going to reinvest it.
Compound it. I’ll be rich soon


May is looking like my biggest month, quite a lot of ex-dividends just passed or this week.
