Neil Woodford

Neil Woodford remains one of the best known and best performing fund managers in the UK market today. His large bets in the more defensive tobacco and utilities sectors, coupled with his dislike for the banking sector cost him during the stockmarket’s rally in spring 2003. However, Woodford characteristically bounced back, quite in keeping with his emphasis on investing for the long term, regardless of short-term sentiment. As head of investments at Invesco Perpetual Woodford controlled over £15 billion of assets, and spent 26 years at the company before leaving in 2014 to set up his own fund management firm, Woodford Investment Management LLP. He has a degree in economics from Exeter University and in 2013 was awarded a CBE for services to the economy.


The Fund aims to provide investors with long-term appreciation by investing in stocks primarily listed on the UK stock exchanges and to achieve income of 10% higher than the FTSE All Share Index yield.
