More from the fund manager

We remain in close contact with both Link Fund Solutions (LFS), the fund’s Authorised Corporate Director (ACD) and Woodford Investment Management Ltd, the fund manager.

On Monday 23 September 2019, LFS gave us the following update:

‘We continue to monitor progress of the repositioning of the Fund’s portfolio against the December timeline (Woodford anticipate that the suspension of dealing is likely to last until early December), and have decided that it remains in the interests of all investors for the suspension of dealings to continue. This has been agreed with the Depositary and we have informed the Financial Conduct Authority accordingly.’
