Woodford unveils eponymous fund firm

Woodford unveils eponymous fund firm

The new boutique established by Invesco Perpetual star Neil Woodford will operate under his own name.

According to a filing on Companies House, Woodford Investment Management (WIM) was established last month at the same London address as Oakley Capital, the private equity house Woodford is setting the business up with.

WIM was created under the directorship of legal expert Richard Graham Catherwoord Smith (Gray Smith) and Nick Hamilton.

Last month it was revealed Hamilton would join Oakley as chief operating officer of Woodford's new firm, reviving the relationship they formed at Invesco Perpetual.  

Oakley has said the infrastructure will be in place to allow Woodford to run retail and institutional clients’ money as soon as he joins the firm.
