Santander Shareholders

Santander Shareholder Account and Dividend Re-investment Plan

An easy way to increase your holding of Santander shares whilst earning a rate of 5.00% AER/4.91% gross (variable) on your Santander share dividends

The Santander Shareholder Account and Dividend Re-investment Plan is exclusive to people based in the UK who own Santander shares* and hold them through the Santander Nominee Service. It offers a variable rate of interest of 5.00% AER/4.91% gross (variable) on deposited Santander share dividends between re-investments.

Why choose the Santander Shareholder Account and Dividend Re-investment Plan?

  • Acquire more Santander shares  - without paying dealing charges.
  • Rate - 5.00% AER/4.91% gross (variable) on deposited Santander share dividends.
  • Quarterly dividend re-investment - Your share dividends will automatically be re-invested into Santander shares on a quarterly basis. Please note that quarterly dividend re-investments will be suspended when Santander implements the Scrip Dividend Scheme. Please refer to the terms and conditions for details.
  • You also have the option when you open a new Santander Shareholder Account and Dividend Re-investment Plan to deposit an additional £1000 for investment into Santander shares on the next quarterly re-investment date.  Simply send a personal cheque made payable to yourself up to the value of £1000 with your completed application form. Please note that quarterly dividend re-investments will be suspended when Santander implements the Scrip Dividend Scheme, which may lead to a delay between depositing your funds at account opening and the acquisition of Santander shares. Please refer to the terms and conditions for details.
  • No closure or penalty charge - withdrawals or partial withdrawals are not allowed, but you can close your account at any time without penalty.
  • Quarterly statements - if Santander shares have been acquired for you.
