- Cliff Weight, ShareSoc Woodford Campaign will review the 4 legal claims ongoing (and their merits), and the potential for other claims
- Q&A – Panel
Event Information: £1bn of savings were lost by investors in the Woodford Equity Income Fund. The FCA has spent more than three years investigating what went wrong and has still not published any findings. It has, however, produced new guidance for Authorised Fund Managers, the role that Link was supposed to do and allegedly failed to do. There are at least 4 legal claims being pursued: 2 against Link and 2 against Link and Hargreaves Lansdown. ShareSoc has endorsed the Leigh Day claim against Link in respect of WEIF investors.
These and other questions will be addressed in our webinar on July 19th, which will include a Q&A session with the speakers, chaired by ShareSoc Director, Mark Northway.
