Neil Woodford has handed over management of the £8.4 billion Invesco Perpetual Income fund and the £13 billion High Income fund to Mark Barnett eight weeks earlier than originally planned.

Woodford announced he was quitting Invesco Perpetual in October after 25 years employment and later confirmed he would be joining Oakley Capital on May 1.

At the time of quitting assets under management totalled £24 billion between the two open-end income funds, but this has since dropped several million pounds as voted with their feet. Morningstar analysts placed the funds Under Review, where they had previously held a Gold Rating.
