When St James place sells the unit trust version of this fund? I think it will be better in the long run , as sometimes these funds get too big to manage .i do hold the Guinness income fund which is smaller though both have given me similar income and results .I see Woodward is starting up his own fund soon, waiting for details to be sent to me later this month , might move my dosh from here and follow him , anyone else think the same?

Nice to see new lower charges. 0.55% flat fee and removal of the performance fee. This is one of the things I'm not very keen on as the market can rise overall, giving the manager a kick in fees without actually being anything special. When the market falls back, you don't get that extra fee back on their "poor" performance because "its the wider market" that has fallen. Additionally the £7.5M reduction in this years fee can only help further. Nice yield, reduced costs and trading at a slight discount whats not to like. I cant remember but wasn't this trading on a surplus more recently around +4% So fits a good buy and hold investment. It will be interesting to see how many other IT's revisit costs now RDR impact is on the way although the change in manager might also have been a driver. Invesco Perpetual may have been more open to a reduction in fees to prevent the money following Woodford out of the door. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/personalfinance/investing/10394637/Invesco-Perpetuals-Mark-Barnett-How-Ill-run-Neil-Woodfords-funds.html
