    St James’s Place reports waning investor appetite to ride volatility

    Investors’ willingness to plough money into volatile markets has stalled, with UK wealth manager St James’s Place reporting a fall in new investment for April. “We have naturally seen a reduction in new investments as the Covid-19 crisis developed,” said Andrew Croft, chief executive, on Wednesday. The fall in gross inflows was countered by a modest 1 per cent rise in net inflows, which include withdrawals, over the month, beating expectations.

    St. James's Place net April inflows cheer investors, analysts

    Asset manager St James's Place <SJP.L> reported a 1% rise in year-on-year net inflows to 810 million pounds in April as clients resisted panic and continued to invest in the face of the coronavirus and its likely impact on their wealth. Shares were trading 6.5% higher at 0756 GMT after analysts at Bank of America and JPM Cazenove cheered the resilience of the wealth manager's business model, which continued to attract cash during the tightest phase of Britain's COVID-19 lockdown. "Following record first quarter new business, we have naturally seen a reduction in new investments as the COVID-19 crisis developed," Andrew Croft, Chief Executive, said, adding that gross April inflows were 13% lower than the same month last year.

"Since suspension, Woodford has sold 97.1 million pounds of stock as he continues to reposition the Woodford Equity Income Fund portfolio," a Woodford spokesman said by email.

    UPDATE 2-Watchdog examines Guernsey listings of suspended Woodford fund

    Britain's financial watchdog said it was examining a decision by a frozen Woodford fund to list investments in Guernsey, as wealth manager St James's Place pulled 3.5 billion pounds ($4.45 billion) from the firm in a widening fall-out from the suspension. In a rare event, British fund manager Neil Woodford suspended trading late on Monday in his 3.7 billion pound ($4.70 billion) flagship Equity Income Fund after an increase in demand by clients to take back their money. Woodford, one of Britain's highest-profile money managers and a particular favorite of retail investors, told investors he needed to prevent them leaving in order to give him time to sell out of a number of unlisted or illiquid positions.
