Neil Woodford has sold 97 million pounds ($123 million) of shares over the past 10 days to boost liquidity in his suspended equity income fund, a Woodford spokesman said on Thursday. Market participants have been expecting a wave of forced selling by Woodford, with some hedge funds taking out short positions against his investments. "Since suspension, Woodford has sold 97.1 million pounds of stock as he continues to reposition the Woodford Equity Income Fund portfolio," a Woodford spokesman said by email.
Neil Woodford rebuffed the City of London’s top regulator, saying he’d keep charging fees to investors even while he forbids them from exiting his flagship fund. “The company will continue to charge the fee as the fund remains actively managed and we focus on repositioning the portfolio,” a Woodford spokesman said in response to Bailey’s comments on Tuesday. Andrew Bailey, chief executive officer of the Financial Conduct Authority, earlier told the BBC Radio Four’s Today program that Woodford “should consider his position” on fees during the halt in redemptions from the LF Woodford Equity Income Fund.
British money manager Neil Woodford cut his stakes in at least 21 companies this week as he frees up cash to meet a rush of redemption requests that forced him to suspend his flagship fund. Woodford, one of Britain's best known investors, froze his Equity Income Fund on Monday as too many people were asking for their money back after a number of his top investments turned sour. Filings from the London Stock Exchange - more than 80% of his holdings are UK-based - found 21 sales by Woodford of companies in which he is a major investor.
