Woodford: Europe still catching up in banking crisis

The manager of the Invesco income and high income funds says: “Europe is just recognising that it has a crisis and [is] just beginning to recognise that lots of balance sheets need further to go [in terms of strengthening].” (article continues below)

Woodford says while banks remain “broken”, stimulus such as quantitative easing will fail to make an impact.
