In a move demonstrating its robust financial position, JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM ) announced an increase in its quarterly dividend from $1 to $1.05 per share on Tuesday. The decision, which was approved by the company's board, will come into effect on October 31 and will apply to shareholders who are registered as of the close of business on October 6.
This dividend increase is part of a series of strategic decisions taken by the banking giant, aimed at maximizing shareholder returns. The company had earlier revealed its plans to increase the dividend during the Federal Reserve's stress test process in June. The successful completion of this test led to Tuesday's announcement.
In addition to the dividend hike, JPMorgan also confirmed its ongoing authority to buy back common shares under its current scheme during the stress test process in June. This reaffirms the company's commitment to offering value to its shareholders.
