Dividends

BPI has consistently practiced paying dividends to shareholders on a regular basis. This is designed to provide shareholders the balance that they seek between current income and capital appreciation. The bank evaluates this practice from time to time given its capital needs and growth targets, as may be required.


At the regular meeting of BPI’s Board of Directors held on 18 May 2022, the Board approved a dividend policy based on a dividend payout ratio of 35% to 50% of previous year’s earnings


This dividend policy replaces the fixed Php 0.90 dividend per share per semester paid by the Bank in prior years.


Our ability to return capital to shareholders, at the same time adhering to risk and capitalization standards, is a testament to BPI's fiduciary prudence. In 2021, the Bank declared and paid Php 8.12 billion in total dividends, for an annual payout ratio of 37.9% percent. For the first semester of 2022, the Bank declared and paid 1.06 dividend per share, for total of Php 4.8 billion.


The following are key figures from 2017 to 2022.
