HL is part of a secular growth story with the PENSION freedoms meaning more and more investors left to DIY their portfolios

Class action would hurt the share price but suspect its chance of success is very low. Plenty of warnings re any investments made these days.

HL had what they call a 'Wealth 150' (now renamed 'Wealth 50') and it was always marketed as their suggestions for new long term investments. I don't think HL ever called it a 'Best Buy' list themselves, but others might have done. I doubt a class action would have any merit as HL have always been very careful to make clear any investments clients make based on their articles and the W150 are on a strictly 'non-advisory' basis. The FCA has always been happy with this distinction. Therefore the only people to make money would be the lawyers...

The Telegraph today has an article inferring that class actions may be taken against HL by people who invested in Neil Woodford's fund(s)which they say were recommended by HL as they were included in HL's 'Best Buy' lists. Did HL have a 'Best Buy' list as to me that could be construed as a recommendation? On looking at HL's website I cannot see any references to best buy, however they use the terms most viewed, most traded, favourites etc which are clearly not recommendations

Latest WEIF price is 85.34p - I guess the final price will also depend on what they get (if anything) for all the unquoted stuff.

Of course if HL share price suffers, so does Lindsell Train, and then so do the owners of the fund .... heavily promoted by HL.

I would think WEIF will be worth somewhere between 70 and 90p at liquidation, so not great, but nothing like 70pc. Additionally HL assets and profits keep going up, so unless there was serious competition who could actually prise investors away in big numbers then I don't see how the shares would end up anywhere near £12.

I agree, they do have work to do. My comment was more aimed at the, frankly, OTT ongoing vilification by the press.

In reply to lomax99, yes the 2% is small, but the 1/3 of HL clients is big and whilst clearly those clients also have other investments with HL, losing money on Woodford is not going to taste nice and could make them doubtful about fresh investments through HL for the time being (especially those in the W50) - hence HL need to work really hard to keep those types of investors on side and happy.

I am not sure whether % impact of victims or number of affected clients is a measurement to go by. The reality is that HL gave investment advice, failed to perform due diligence, used Woodford to promote its own products from which HL derived a management fee, and benefited from all of this hype it created. Losing trust in Woodford qualifies a loss of trust in HL's fund of funds and fund advice. Dampier apparently invested even more into Woodford since being given the boot. Till now he doesn't see the mistakes he's made, that loyalty to someone's historical track record is a resounding demonstration of the fact he doesn't really understand Woodford. He doesn't understand the underlying investments, and should never have been given responsibility to assess investments... It goes to show HL have no clue how to really run a fund of fund business and should remain a platform without trying to be too smart. Plenty of investors have been badly burnt by Woodford, and is evidence there are so many freeloaders pretending to know how to give investment advice on fund managers, besides HL. Supposedly independent IFAs, wealth businesses, retail bank channels.. It is shocking.

Let's get some context here, HL. clients funds in W were under 2% of AUM, yes that's right just 2% - which means the holders of the other, only, 98%, are probably relatively oblivious to all the, agenda driven, 'noise'.It has also been reported that up to 1/3rd of HL clients held W (either directly, or indirectly), which means their average W holding would represent barely 6% of their individual porfolio's.

Ochs is right. I opted out of mailshots with Hargreaves way back. You had to call them but that was normal back then. Added to which, if people want compensation from HL for ‘pushing’; Woodford, are they also advocating that people pay Hargreaves some of their profits for all the US trackers they were ‘pushing’; back then which have rocketed since then?

No, you've always been able to opt out - you just needed to ring them and speak to them in 2014.

@ochs. Actually you idiot you could NOT opt out in 2014, you may be able to now.

Mis selling scandal of Woodford - will there be fallout /mis selling by HL.? The flagship Equity Income Fund was set up to be, in the industry parlance, a “widows and orphan” product — designed to provide cautious investors with high dividend payments and low-risk returns. “The whole purpose of that strategy was for investors to sleep easy at night and lose less money than the market,” said one person close to the fund manager. In reality, the portfolio was piled high with speculative bets on unlisted companies, which proved hard to sell when investors bolted.

Woodford was lucky in avoiding the tech boom and now unlucky in his choice of illiquid stocks. Net result he has been exposed as no better (even worse) than average at picking stocks. Best his fund is wound up as who would want to pay a fair price for his stocks. HL taking a hit on trading on Woodfords name but nobody on their platform was forced to buy the Woodford funds. I would rather choose my own shares than trust any fund manager and HL provides a good platform for doing that.

Totally untrue - you can always opt out of mailshots with HL (and with any company for that matter).

Yes lawyers will be rubbing their hands together for the pigs trough that will be a class action against HL, when i had an account with them I was inundated with mailshots pushing this woodford cxxp, i remember saying to them i didnt like the hard sell or the funds and they said you cant opt out of mailshots! A grotty company.

Keeping my ears open for a class action on HL. They promoted Woodford during a period it should never have been in the top 100 let alone top 10000
