Green Ash Partners LLP (London), a Woodman Group company, is pleased to announce it has expanded its investment team and product offering by welcoming Pentalpha Capital, a London based multi asset & equity manager, into the partnership, creating a $1bn AuM asset manager.
Founded in 2009 by Miles Cohen and Nick Freeman, Green Ash LLP is an independent investment manager (Regulated by the FCA) focused on providing liquid credit portfolio solutions to its institutional & professional client base.

In conjunction with this transaction, Green Ash will be launching a new Sustainable Global Short Duration fund, focusing on providing stable income with limited drawdown, on the back of the firm’s newly developed ESG compliant investment process. The firm will work closely with Woodman, via its strategic partnership, to increase distribution and asset growth across Europe.
