Demand for forest products, and thus for fibre and logs, is driven by several macro trends; global demand for wood is increasing steadily. Based on long-term historical data, wood prices have increased over inflation rate. Forest product demand and price trends are positive for timberland investment as whole, with considerable regional and country variations. Demand for such forest-related products as biodiversity and climate change mitigation services, is increasing rapidly.
Social and environmental sustainability underlie all our natural capital investments. We see forest investment as an environmentally and socially responsible activity in itself contributing to sustainable development while generating profits to investors.
We act as an investment advisor to institutional investors, endowments, private banks, family offices and other clients interested in sustainable international timberland investing.
