GrowthPotential / a1samu - HL pumped a demonstrably failing fund, and one that sailed close to the wind with UCITS requirements. There is an argument to be had that a list of 'our favourite funds' is tantamount to advice. If 'our favourite funds' happen to be more commercially attractive than not our favourite funds, then there is more than a little conflict of interest. So yes, there is potential for miss-selling, but that is not my central thesis. HL is highly rated, and that rating implies high quality growth. I would argue that investors in the Woodford funds are likely to be the least risk aware, and while the promotional material always clearly states no guarantees, this isn't advice, etc etc, the nods and winks imply otherwise. I would also suggest the portrayal of Woodford as a lone contrarian hero winning out against the smart kids with their computers and sums and whatnot, and now he's battling for Britain, would appeal to the least sophisticated cohort of investors. Even if marginal growth is curtailed this is sufficient to derate as even at the current share price it is priced for perfection. There is absolutely no reason it should not trade down to where it was earlier in the year.

Daily Nail today is calling for compensation for investors from HL for miss-selling! Read article by Victoria Bischoff @dailymail.co.uk

I would challenge that view in that HL is a platform and there's little damage that can arise from this. Investors are fully aware of the risks of funds and as such it's most likely going to be remembered as a bad fund rather than a platform error

Telegraph online seems to be laying into the arrogance of Woodford.

IMO this will be a slow burner as the swift de-risk, as we saw on the open, while there remains a bid from dip buyers, as per the middle of the session. HL are reliant on platform fees from open ended funds, and their trusted name to generate business. At this share price people are paying for profits years in advance. This event only has to slow growth to bring the multiple down to something much more reasonable.

I've gone short on the bounce. Can see it going back to the trend line at least. As an HL customer I know their modus operandi is to promote the concept of the star manager. This episode damages that whole thesis, which as we know is nonsense in any case. As you say Ochs, their own holdings through the MM funds (layer upon layer upon layer of fees) cause direct damage. Their wealth 50 (whose wealth exactly?) might well be regulated out of existence as being in effect advisory. Hefty director sales and an uncertain stock market world wide. Good odds of the short coming good IMO.

I'm short of Woodford Patient Capital, which is down quite a bit today. I suspect the board will now be under great pressure to fire Woodford as portfolio manager or he'll resign to concentrate on his struggling unit trusts. Another short opportunity could be St James Place as they have a number of their funds run by Woodford and unlike HL have provided paid for financial advice to clients to invest with Woodford. As you probably know HLs 'recommendations' are all on a non-advisory basis. That said they've chosen to retain investments with Woodford through their multi-manager funds which is likely to hurt clients invested in those.

greatballsoffire451 - you were right that the HL share price has fallen first thing (as has Woodford Patient Capital), however why do you think HL won't take monthly fees on investments in the suspended Woodford fund? Client's will still hold it and it will be valued at the last quoted asset value (ie. from 31/5).

"Clearly at present with dealing suspended clients can't actually sell the Equity Income Fund (but HL will still take their monthly fee from those investments!)"Errr I don't think so.

HL were certainly foolish to keep the 2 Woodford funds in their Wealth 50 for so long, but apart from reputational damage I don't think this will affect their bottom line all that much. Infact it might actually help because most of HL's money is made from the 0.45% platform fee - and as the Woodford fund's have fallen in value this will have gone down - so going forward if new investors instead choose alternative funds (from the W50 or elsewhere) and they go up, so too does HL's 0.45% in monetary terms. Clearly at present with dealing suspended clients can't actually sell the Equity Income Fund (but HL will still take their monthly fee from those investments!)

Those director sales were very prudent ahem. They knew that Woodford was gonna hit the skids. Along with most other sane investors.
