We are delighted to announce our intention to launch Woodford Patient Capital Trust plc. We have been clear for some time about our ambition to launch an investment vehicle which would give Neil Woodford the opportunity to build greater exposure to early-stage and early-growth companies across various sectors. Woodford Patient Capital Trust plc will be that vehicle.
We are passionate about investing in early-stage and early-growth companies. This is an unloved part of the market which offers significant untapped opportunities that are much less influenced by wider market sentiment. Very few investors are willing to embrace the long-term ‘patient capital’ approach required in this area to deliver successful outcomes. Watch our video below to hear Neil talking about what patient capital means to him.
