Good asset management in timberland can provide 4-12% annual returns

Benedicte Gravrand, Opalesque Geneva:

Institutional capital invested in timber grew to more than $57 billion as of June 30, up from less than $1 billion in 1989, according to Boston-based forestland research firm RISI Inc, reported PIonline.com. Apparently, institutional investors worldwide are building their timber investments for diversification from traditional asset classes and even commercial real estate.

This attraction to timber and timberland investments could come from the promise of better rates of annual returns, and be more suitable for institutions as they require a longer time horizon.

A small U.S. investment manager tells Opalesque that, provided the asset class is well managed, one can expect anything between 4% and 12% in returns on an annual basis.

Michael Shearer, co-founding partner and principal of Timberland Capital Advisors (TCA), talked to Sona Blessing on Opalesque Radio about opportunities, expected positive performance outcomes and the customization of timberland investments. TCA is a U.S.-based investment management firm focused on locating, acquiring, managing and liquidating timberland assets to meet investors' specific needs.
