I'm trying to acquire more knowledge on this subject. According to information I been reading, the Ex Div date for stocks is usually set one business day before the Record Date.
So can someone please explain to me why on the Vanguard site they show for (EG LS INC) the dates as the other way round ie EX div date 01/04/19 and Record date 29/03/19. The pattern is the same for previous years.
I'm sure there's a valid explanation here which my knowledge is lacking.
