Claim against Link in respect of the Woodford Equity Income Fund

Find out more information on our group claim against Link

Leigh Day is pursuing a claim on behalf of individuals who invested in the Woodford Equity Income Fund (WEIF).

WEIF was suspended in June 2019, and its winding-up was announced in October 2019.

From our investigations, we believe that Link allowed WEIF to hold excessive illiquid or difficult-to-sell investments, which caused investors significant loss. In doing so, we consider Link breached the FCA Handbook rules and failed to properly carry out the management function of the Woodford Equity Income Fund.

This claim is now closed to new sign-ups.
