There has been much talk and many pages written about the Woodford scandal.

It’s a scandal that centres around a rockstar fund manager’s fall from grace; a scandal that leads to life-changing financial losses that have shattered the lives of thousands of investors; a scandal that has rocked the investment world and the regulatory framework that’s supposed to govern it.


The purpose of this event is to deal with four key questions:

  • What happened?
  • Who’s to blame for what happened?
  • How might the thousands of victims get the justice and compensation they deserve?
  • What changes are needed to help ensure that nothing like it happens again?
