CIO Tapes: fund selectors failed on Woodford diligence

As the Woodford saga continues to rumble on, this film focuses on the failure of governance across the industry on every level.

This video features:

  • Guy Monson, senior partner and CIO, Sarasin & Partners
  • Mark Dowding, CIO, BlueBay Asset Management
  • Nigel Bolton, managing director and co-CIO of active equities, BlackRock
  • Piers Hillier, CIO, Royal London Asset Management
  • Lucy MacDonald, managing director and CIO of global equities, Allianz Global Investors
