    Investors in collapsed Woodford fund to get half their cash in January

    Hundreds of thousands of investors trapped in the former flagship fund of veteran money manager Neil Woodford should get just over half their money back in January, but may have to wait some time to recover more from the collapsed business. Woodford, who made his name as a contrarian investor over a 30-plus-year career, has come under fire from regulators and investors for the 3 billion pound ($3.85 billion) LF Woodford Equity Income Fund's heavy exposure to unlisted, hard-to-sell stocks. Trading in the UK-focused fund was initially suspended in June after it ran out of cash to pay back investors seeking to leave after a period of underperformance.

    Woodford listed fund shares drop after valuation cut

    Shares in Woodford Patient Capital Trust, founded by veteran money manager Neil Woodford, dropped as much as 7% on Monday after the fund cut the valuation of one of its major holdings. WPCT last month named asset manager Schroders to manage its portfolio after the abrupt exit of Woodford following the winding up of his flagship equity income fund. WPCT's net asset value will drop by 4.3 pence following the downward valuation of IH Holdings, a unit of cold fusion technology firm Industrial Heat, as well as the upward valuation of another unnamed company, the fund said in a statement.

    Schroders to manage Woodford Patient Capital after founder's exit

    Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT) named asset manager Schroders to manage its portfolio on Thursday after last week's abrupt exit of its founder Neil Woodford. Woodford, one of Britain's most high-profile fund managers, resigned as he shut his business after administrators closed his flagship equity income fund. It will be renamed Schroder UK Public Private Trust when Schroders takes over the management of the assets, expected by the end of the year, and the new management team will stick to WPCT's existing strategy of investing largely in unlisted firms.

    Fallen fund star Woodford's firm suffers ignominious end

    Once one of Britain's most celebrated money managers and idolized by a legion of investor devotees, the collapse of Neil Woodford's business has been swift and brutal. The 59-year-old moved quickly to call time on his eponymous asset management company late on Tuesday, hours after being sacked as manager of the firm's flagship fund by its administrator, Link Fund Solutions. The move followed four months of efforts to sell out of a number of unlisted and little traded stocks - some 20% of the fund's portfolio according to Britain's regulator - and raise cash to pay off investors irked by weak returns.

    UPDATE 2-Trading in second Woodford fund suspended - administrator

    A second Woodford fund was suspended from trading on Wednesday after embattled investor Neil Woodford resigned as its manager. Link Fund Solutions, administrator of the 258 million pound ($330 million) LF Woodford Income Focus Fund, said it had been forced to act as it expected Woodford's departure to trigger a rush for the exits. "We expect that the redemptions in the Fund will reach a level whereby it may no longer be able to continue to meet redemption requests without prejudicing the interests of both remaining and redeeming investors," Link said in a letter to investors.
