Newly formed investment company, Woodford Investment Management, has appointed Broadgate Mainland as its retained agency.
The appointment follows the agency’s successful PR management of the launch of Woodford Investment Management in May 2014, and the firm’s first fund launch. Managed by Neil Woodford, the CF Woodford Equity Income Fund raised a record breaking £1.6 billion during its offer period in June 2014.
Broadgate Mainland has been tasked to provide strategic communications advice to assist the investment company as it builds a fund management business that will be underpinned by an active and unconstrained attitude to fund management. Woodford Investment Management will challenge and aim to influence the management of companies it invests in and to align business and shareholder needs with a focus on the long term management of its clients’ money.
