...amazed those idiots Dampier and Gardhouse not " resigned " ie been thrown under the bus. HL needs sacrifies, not just drivel apologies.

I think it's a slam dunk to £15, possibly £12, before any need to revisit. Just go back to the Stocko ratings: you are paying here for quality and momentum, and both are falling sharply.

Short positions being taken left, right and centre. This could get very nasty, very quickly.

I think HL will end up getting a bank style fine, their rep already in tatters since press now wont let go and the Woodentop funds/trust collapsing at light speed. Back in at 14.50 I think.

Given the number of times they appear to have talked with NW and their access to data on their own client PFs it is inconceivable that they didn't know what was about to happen. As with all companies in trouble, the news is all there, just need the FCA and the Commons select committee to move at their usual glacial pace. AJ Bell must be laughing away

@ochs Lee Gardhouse the useless muppet hasnt issued an apology becos he doesnt want to draw any more attention to the fact he unloaded 550k of HL shares in run up to sxxt hitting fan, he and Dampier plainly new what was coming down the tracks and sold out, guess next question from FCA will be did they use inside info to make timely exits.

6% on average leaves 94% free, IMO you are overstating the case. The MM’s have plenty liquidity, short of a Northern Rock style run, the chances of that IMO are hovering around zero! It is my understanding that the gated fund will still be paying dividend related commitments during it's suspension.

14% in any collective scheme is a huge exposure

MF - My understanding is that across all MM funds their average exposure to W funds (and not all are gated) is c. 6% (largest single fund exposure is c 14%) - hardly 'balls deep'!!

key issue will be if they start getting redemptions on their multi-manager funds which are balls-deep in Woodford. They will either have to sell the quality and be left holding Woodford in ever increasing amounts or else gate those. The FCA must be all over this: getting discounts from Woodford in return for pumping him full of client money, including in their own funds. Hard to see them escaping without making massive changes to their business model. Given Stockopedia rank 94 on quality, 6 on value and 83 on Momentum, and the Q and M figures are falling through the floor, it is hard to see where the bottom could be here

Salty, I don't see any major issue for HL here. They've been 'recommending' funds for many many years and always state clearly that their opinions are on a 'non-advisory basis' (which the FCA have always been happy with) - unlike SJP who have previously 'advised' fee paying clients to invest in their Woodford managed funds after a full fact find. I agree that HL have been very foolish not to give up on Woodford a year ago (like most others did) but I don't think the fund being in their Wealth 50 list as a suggested long term investment could be classed as 'mis selling'.

The problem for HL. is simple: they were given preferential pricing by Woodford and it seems the quid pro quo was that they ramped his funds. The general test for professional negligence is whether others professionals shared your opinion. For the last 12 months the answer is no. So right away there is a big potential claim. Given the size of the funds the FSA must surely look at how platforms provide advertorial comment. I think the practice of fund managers giving HL discounts which allow them to charge extortionate fees for vanilla custody must end.

As part of our mission to help people invest, we provide our customers with investment ideas, which include our Favourite funds list, Ready-made portfolios and range of AJ Bell funds. None of these include the Woodford Equity Income Fund, or any other Woodford-managed funds: Favourite funds list The Woodford Equity Income Fund was removed from our Favourite funds list in September 2018. It was our opinion that the manager had strayed from the process that had brought previous success, and better funds were available to invest in. At the time, we contacted any holders of the fund to inform them of this change in our selection. Ready-made portfolios Our Ready-made portfolios are made up only from holdings chosen for our Favourite funds list. As we launched the Ready-made portfolios in December 2018, the Woodford Equity Income Fund or any other Woodford-managed fund have not been included. AJ Bell funds Our AJ Bell funds are managed by our team of experts using passive-based funds known as Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs). As ETFs trade on stock exchanges and work in a similar way to investment trusts, they’re not required to return money to investors when redemptions are made. This removes the risk of experiencing a ‘Woodford-type’ situation within our funds.

HL was on a 'racier' rating before Mr Lansdown offloaded c. £170m at c £22.80.From there HL has lost c. £1.6bn, 15% of it's market cap down to the current share price of £19.36.HL's clients money in all Woodford funds at the end of March was c £2.2bn, just 2.2% of the c £99bn HL holds on behalf of all clients on it's platform. HL is waving it's fee whilst that particular Woodford fund is suspended, foregoing a fee of c £16m PA (pro-rata).IMO the fall is overdone, the dip has provided an opportunity to top-up, I added at c. £19.00, and will add further if it drops much lower.

Indeed, that last para was strange based on the rest of the article! I suspect the story is true though and has been leaked so as to provide a fall guy. HL may RNS it on Monday morning, although as he's not a PLC director they may not need to. I did think when he sold all those shares recently that he was likely to be planning a retirement soonish. Additionally succession planning has been going on for a few months - this lady was appointed from Morning Star as "Head of Investment Analysis" in April 2019 hTTps://uk.linkedin.com/in/emma-wall-126466b

I am not aware that HL have made a formal announcement? It looks like headline grabbing by the FT. Right at the end of their piece they even state that he says he has no immediate plans to retire.

Dampier sold a lot of shares a few weeks ago, so retirement was always likely fairly soon, seeing as he's 62 (and already very well off!) Having said that they've probably brought the announcement forward due to the Woodford thing and allowed him to take the fall rather than Gardhouse (who probably should have done). HL's year end is 30 June, so I'm sure Mr D will still want to pick up his healthy bonus before moving on! hTTps://www.google.com/search?q=dampier+to+retire%3F&rlz=1C1CHBD_en-GBGB736GB736&oq=dampier+to+retire%3F&aqs=chrome..69i57.14087j0j4&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
