Why you should attend...
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 4 key questions:
#1 – What happened?
#2 – Who’s to blame for what happened?
#3 – How might the thousands of victims get the justice and compensation they deserve?
#4 – What changes are needed to help ensure that nothing like it ever happens again?
The speaker line-up includes:
Mark Bishop, Leader, Connaught Action Group
Meriel Hodgson-Teall, Associate Solicitor at the law firm Leigh Day, who is working on the case
Owen Walker, Journalist at the FT and author of “Built on a Lie: The Rise and Fall of Neil Woodford and the Fate of Middle England’s Money”
Sunil Chadda, Project Manager at Punter Southall Analytics
Our speakers will bring to life what has been Europe’s biggest investment scandal for over a decade; and that’s saying something!
