Ashmore announce a final dividend of 12.10p per share

The Ashmore Board intends to pay a progressive ordinary dividend over time, taking into consideration factors such as the prospects for the Group's earnings, demands on the Group's financial resources, and the markets in which the Group operates.

In recognition of Ashmore's performance during the period, and consistent with the stated intention to re-establish dividend cover of at least 1.5 times statutory earnings, the Directors are recommending a final dividend of 12.10 pence per share for the year ending 30 June 2019, which, subject to shareholder approval, will be paid on 6 December 2019 to shareholders who are on the register on 1 November 2019.
