Dividends

Tryg’s dividend policy states the ambition to grow the annual nominal dividend paid out to shareholders while maintaining a solid solvency position based on Tryg’s partial internal capital model.

Tryg aims to offer a nominally stable and increasing ordinary dividend on an annual basis. The targeted pay-out ratio of 60-90% is secondary to the aim of increasing the annual dividend. Dividends are paid quarterly. Additional capital repatriation at year-end is also paid up as extraordinary dividends.

Since the introduction of the new dividend policy in 2012, the dividend per share moved from 5.2 in 2012 to 6.6 in 2018. 

Tryg is the only European Insurer that pays dividend quarterly. The aim is to increase the dividend on an annual basis while the quarterly dividend is maintained at the same level throughout the quarters.
