Dasos Timberland Fund I

Overview

Dasos Timberland Fund I was launched in June 2009. It has MEUR 101.5 of funds under management. At least 40% of the Fund's assets are placed in Europe and maximum 60% in emerging countries. The Fund seeks to achieve returns by active planning, management and control of the forest assets to enhance value and mitigating risks associated with the management and development of timberland assets, and to exit when the investments have been de-risked via secondary sales to long term yield focused investors.

The Fund aims at a well-diversified global portfolio that combines the aspects of geographical, age and wood fibre as well as end-use diversification, and safe but acceptable returns in the Northern Hemisphere with high risk-adjusted returns in the emerging markets. The portfolio combines mature and greenfield forest assets with an objective of generating early cash flow. 

Dasos Timberland Fund I is regulated by Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF) of Luxembourg. 

Dasos follows valuation and reporting standards of EVCA and FVCA with the asset valuation being based on IFRS.
