Neil Woodford is the man of the decade when it comes to hedge funds
The CF Woodford Equity Income Fund is one of the most impressive funds year on year for growth and stability, and has released the full list of companies he has invested in and the weight of each investment in the fund. His fund is very very popular, and often considered as the best Hedge Fund Manager of the past 10 years.
Lets Take a look at his Income fund top 10 holdings:
British American Tobacco
Legal & General
- 48.4% Of Total Portfolio in 10 Holdings
- 3 Consumer Goods
- 3 Healthcare
- 2 Financials
- 1 Industrial
- 1 Telecommunications
So If you are unsure what a balanced Stock portfolio is, or are looking at owning stocks in a balanced portfolio, look no further. Only 48% of the whole hedgefund is in 10 holdings. In those holdings, only 3 in Consumer Goods, and 3 in Healthcare. People make mistakes of investing in multiple businesses in the same sector, and only holding a few holdings. Diversification is the key!
