Firm expands platform to include customized solutions to meet the complex needs of high-net-worth investors
NEWARK, N.J., Oct. 19, 2021 – PGIM Investments announced today that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Green Harvest Asset Management LLC (“Green Harvest”), a separately managed account (SMA) platform providing customized solutions for the complex needs of high-net-worth investors. PGIM, Inc. is the $1.5 trillion global investment management business of Prudential Financial, Inc. (NYSE: PRU) — a top-10 investment manager globally.
Green Harvest’s SMA strategies employ a unique approach to direct indexing through the use of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) with the potential to provide clients improved after-tax outcomes.
“With markets near all-time highs and potential tax increases on the horizon, understanding the impact of capital gains taxes and implementing strategies focused on after-tax results are critically important for investors, particularly those in the ultra-high-net-worth category,” said Stuart Parker, president and CEO of PGIM Investments. “This acquisition underscores our commitment to meeting the evolving needs of our clients and we are pleased to welcome Green Harvest on board.”
Subject to customary closing conditions, the deal is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2021. Upon completion, Green Harvest will join PGIM Investments’ retail platform, expanding the firm’s wide range of investment solutions and capabilities.
“We see tremendous value in combining Green Harvest’s capabilities with the strength and stability of PGIM Investments and look forward to bringing PGIM’s clients personalized solutions to meet their investment objectives,” said Robert Holderith, Green Harvest CEO.
Berkshire Global Advisors served as exclusive financial advisor to Green Harvest in this transaction.
