Mark Barnett is back. It was announced this week that the fund manager, best known as Neil Woodford’s protégé, is joining boutique investment house Tellworth to launch a UK Equity Income fund.

Barnett has had a pretty rubbish few years: after taking over the running of Woodford’s funds at Invesco, he had to grapple with establishing himself as a manager in his own right while managing billions of pounds of outflows as Woodford loyalists followed the star manager to his new company. Barnett was then caught up in the Woodford collapse and his funds, which owned many of the same stocks as his former colleague, struggled. He was removed as the manager of the two investment trusts he ran and later left Invesco after 24 years at the firm.
