Millions of investors have entrusted their hard earned savings to Neil Woodford's Invesco Perpetual Income fund - and been handsomely rewarded. If you had invested £1,000 in the £10.6 billion fund a decade ago you would have nearly quadrupled your cash. 

Similarly those who had invested in the £14 billion High Income fund would have seen their holding increase by 20% this year alone. 

Which begs the question - can Woodford's successor match these figures? The official line from Invesco is that Mark Barnett is "is an exceptional investor who has the same active, valuation-driven investment approach and long-term focus" as Woodford.
