At Woodford we have set new standards for communicating with our clients since our establishment in 2014. We never forget whose money we are investing and we believe that investors have a right to understand how their investments are being managed – and also have a choice in how they are communicated with.

Here, you can find out what we’re thinking as we think it and let us have your immediate comments and questions on individual pieces or more generally on our communication programme. Articles are written primarily by our team, with additional contributions from respected industry figures, and feature a mix of articles, thoughts, observations and commentary relating to events and trends in the global financial markets.

We’re keen to ensure our content is of interest and value to our existing and prospective clients so please do get in touch and let us know what you think.
