Introducing The CF Woodford Income Focus Fund

CF Woodford Income Focus Fund

We are delighted to announce the launch of the third fund from Woodford Investment Management.

This brand new offering from Woodford has been developed to meet investor demand for a fund offering a higher level of regular and sustainable income, with no compromise on quality. It will be managed by Neil Woodford, an exceptionally talented fund manager for more than 25 years, who has consistently delivered outstanding long-term performance to investors.

A keener focus on income

With negligible interest rates on offer and income returns on bonds at record low levels, the search for quality income streams is growing harder for investors and demand is higher than ever.

The fund will initially aim to deliver an income of 5p per share per annum together with long-term capital growth and will offer exposure to quoted assets (the majority dividend-paying), with no geographical investment restrictions.

* The fund manager will aim to deliver an income of 5p per share per annum. Investors should be aware that there is no guarantee that any specific level of dividend or yield will be achieved over any given time period.

An unwavering focus on delivering a positive long-term return for our clients

It will focus on the desirably valued dividend-paying companies of today and tomorrow at home and overseas. The aim is to deliver attractive long-term returns as well as sustainable regular income. The fund will target high single-digit returns (with a significant proportion of total return derived from income). Investors expect a positive return and that is what Woodford aims to deliver over the long term. Protecting capital is key (the fund may be more volatile in the short term than other Woodford funds as a higher exposure to quoted securities means it may be more significantly impacted by general market volatility).

An investment team that shares a single goal

Neil will be supported by a dedicated team that shares his approach and commitment to the goal of exceptional long-term performance. Three experienced fund managers work with Neil, each with a different skill set for depth of cross-market coverage. Two specialist analysts support the fund managers, providing them with valuable analysis and support on specific investment opportunities.

Why invest with Woodford?

Neil Woodford has a proven long-term track record. His track record is testimony to his ability to make the right decisions when conditions are tricky. We share Woodford�s confidence in the investment case for this fund and in its ability to meet investor expectations, delivering attractive long-term returns and sustainable regular income.

The value of the fund and the income from it may go down as well as up, so you may get back less than you invested. Past performance is not a guide to future returns. The annual management charge is charged to capital, so the income of the fund may be higher but capital growth may be restricted or capital may be eroded. The fund may invest in overseas securities and be exposed to currencies other than pound sterling. We do not give investment advice. If you are unsure about the suitability of an investment, you should obtain expert independent advice.
