Woodford launches offshore feeder fund


Woodford Investment Management is launching an offshore feeder fund for the CF Woodford Equity Income Fund.

Available from 13 October 2016, the UCITS fund will be domiciled in Ireland and will be available to a range of investors, including wealth managers based in the UK, Channel Islands and Isle of Man.
The fund will be available in sterling, euro and US dollars, as well as in hedged and unhedged share classes.
The CF Woodford Equity Income Fund invests primarily in UK-listed companies and aims to provide investors with a reasonable level of income together with capital growth. Since its launch, it is the number one ranked fund in the UK Investment Association’s equity income sector, having returned 29.82 per cent, compared with the FTSE All Share Index, which has returned 12.22 per cent over the period.
Craig Newman (pictured), chief executive at Woodford, says: “Launching an offshore feeder fund is a natural extension to our fund range. It gives wealth managers based in the Channel Islands and Isle of Man, and clients domiciled outside the UK who supported Neil Woodford in the past, the opportunity to invest in his equity income strategy again.”
