What is the spreadbetting yield?

Yield is the dividend paid divided by the margin Requirement. So, from our BP example earlier of taking a position in BP of £10 / point, BP are expected to pay a dividend of 5p / share, which totals 1000 * 5p. This is £50, so the yield is 50/225, which comes out at approximately 22%.
