As at 31 October 2019

Trust manager Neil Woodford
Trust name Woodford Patient Capital Trust plc
Investment manager Woodford Investment Management Ltd
Investment objective The Company's investment objective is to achieve long-term capital growth through investing in a diversified portfolio with a focus on UK companies, both quoted and unquoted. As these companies evolve, the geographical profile of the portfolio may also change to become more global in nature for reasons such as an overseas listing or as the result of changes to the capital value of a non-UK company.

The Company will aim to deliver a return in excess of 10 per cent per annum over the longer term1.
