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.

We aim to publish the prospectus for the launch of Woodford Patient Capital Trust plc in late February, with admission to the London Stock Exchange planned for mid-April 2015.

Here are what we consider to be the investment highlights of this new vehicle:

  • Unique portfolio – the portfolio will represent a mix of our highest conviction blue-chip ideas together with exposure to early-stage and early-growth companies
  • Unconstrained approach – an unconstrained investment approach aiming to identify the best, untapped growth opportunities to deliver attractive long-term returns
  • Innovative fee structure – we will not receive a management fee and will only be awarded a fee based on performance
  • Attractive target returns – we will aim to deliver a return in excess of 10 per cent. per annum1 over the longer term
