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

I am thinking of getting in... SJP still getting stick - A J Bell just does not have the quality of HL platform - and a cut in expences can only help. In my opion Woodford debacal now behind us.

Wpct looking like it will be frozen and a controlled liquidation will take place. Weif down 20 pc in three months, by the time it opens maybe worth .50. The fallout for HL will be massive, it hasnt really started, the pressure from investors who will have lost a fortune going after the FCA....the damage to HL will be huge, and quite rightly, the way they punted those cxxp funds was criminal. What goes around. These could be back to 12 quid pretty soon.

Zero Commission at Schwab The gap between what I get paid on univested funds and what the brokers receive is significant. Lower commissions would be nice although I suspect poor price execution will be the outcome.

Recent HL share rise surprised me but todays Credit Suisse harsh assessment at target price 1740p should bring realism to the market. Mark Dampier (research director) offloaded large stakes at prices between £18 and £24 in the last 12 months. PE of over 30 for the tail end of a growth cycle with mounting competition appears unfounded

More fake news! Re Metro - anyone who does not breach the FCSC £85k individual firm limit is protected. Good to see the share price is currently up c 1% on a 31.7p ex-divi day.

Next up for claims against Hargreeds Landslide is the Active Savings - Savings Account - High Interest Savings - HLAccounts. This high growth business has been aggressively promoting Metro Bank term deposits. How many people are feeling a little unsettled with the state of the situation? Active Savings Accounts: Savings accounts that require account holders to complete certain prerequisites such as crediting of salary or credit card spending in order to receive higher interest. Passive Savings Accounts: Savings accounts that does not require account holders to complete certain prerequisites to receive interest. Generally have lower interest compared to active savings accounts. Would it not be prudent for the PRA & FCA to scrutinise HL contributions as the dominant player it is exhibiting monopolistic behaviour. Noting HL Revenues on Cash increased by 74% to £73.2 million yet the levy merely rebased to a paltry £7 million In light of Woodford the increased risks to HL customers cannot be contained specifically to cash amounts. HL is not a bank. HTTPS://goodwinbarrett.co.uk/mis-sold-managed-portfolio/
