April has been a busy month for investors: the unexpected news that there will be a General Election in June has caused markets to wobble, as has the first round of the French Presidential elections.

There was a handful of new funds launched too – and mixed fortunes reported for some of the UK’s biggest fund management houses.

New Woodford Fund Raises £533m

The Woodford Income Focus fund raised £553 million during its initial offer period this month. Although this is significantly less than other funds launched by Woodford Investment Management, it still compares well to most fund launches.
