The Pride of Icarus: Neil Woodford's Epic Rise and Fall

Neil Woodford was the fund manager who seemed to have it all. Hailed as the genius who "made Middle England rich", he ran one of the UK's best performing investment funds for decades. And then in a few hubristic years, after sticking his own name above the door, he raised an insane amount of cash, made some risky bets and lost the lot. Neil and Jonathan talk to David Ricketts, author of a book on Woodford, about his fall, the reasons for it, and what we've learned.

Presented by Jonathan Ford and Neil Collins.

With David Ricketts.

Produced and edited by Nick Hilton for Podot.
