The financial PR agency will provide long-term strategic comms advice as Woodford Investment Management builds up its business.

The appointment was made without a pitch but follows the agency’s earlier work on the launch of the company in May.

Woodford, who left Invesco Perpetual to set up the company, attracted £1.6bn from investors during the launch period.  

Woodford Investment Management said it appointed Broadgate because of its expert industry knowledge and "invaluable" support around the launch.

Roland Cross, director of Broadgate, said: "Woodford Investment Management has brought a breath of fresh air into the industry with its model built on transparency and simplicity."
