Asset Management – Neil Woodford Asset Management

Neil Woodford stated to the Mail on Sunday “I’ll come good” – which he certainly does when faced with adversity in the past.

Our risk models are extremely ‘lightweight’ with Woodford funds – holding between 1-3%, depending upon the risk mandate; holding Fundsmith, Lindsell Train, Evenlode Income and other quality funds in the UK Equity sector.

We remain watchful of an improvement, although at present we see the fund holding as a differentiator to the sector, depending on economic and political outcomes.
