Woodford buys major holdings in tech trio from Invesco

by Robert St George on Jun 23, 2014 at 14:35

Woodford has also allocated approximately £12.5 million to RM2 International, a Luxembourg-based pallet innovator that listed on AIM in January.

The CF Woodford Equity Income fund began trading last week, but Woodford has yet to reveal how much he raised during its offer period.

‘We don’t believe it would be sensible to announce the total amount raised for the fund immediately for reasons of market sensitivity and to protect investors in the fund,’ he explained.

‘However, we will announce this figure once the portfolio has largely taken shape and we expect the portfolio to be substantially invested by the end of June. In the interests of transparency and keeping our investors informed, we commit to providing full disclosure of the fund’s holdings on our website on a monthly basis.’

Woodford added: ‘I intend to proceed in a careful and considered manner, with a strong, disciplined focus on valuation – I won’t buy any share for the portfolio unless I view its valuation as attractive.’

Steady as it goes Neil . Most of your investors must be very long term individuals after your previous track record.

No need to show how quickly you can get fully invested

Steady fella,

Peter
