Financial services specialist ING U.S. (NYSE:VOYA) announced yesterday its third-quarter dividend of $0.01 per share, the first payout for the now-standalone company of which ING Group is the majority shareholder.
The board of directors said the quarterly dividend is payable on Oct. 1 to the holders of record at the close of business on Aug. 30.
The regular dividend payment equates to a $0.04-per-share annual dividend, yielding 0.1% based on the closing price today of VOYA's stock. It intends to rebrand itself as Voya Financial in the future.
