Unusual, Short Term Investment "Option"
Where hardwood timber investments are typically a medium to long-term investment, the Australian Timber Investment offers short-term investment options (as short as 12months), which can then be rolled over.
The reason timber increases in value is that from the green-sawn planks that eventually become hardwood flooring, the value is determined by the moisture content. During the drying period the timber gets harder and stronger and increases in value by approximately 40%.
The structure of the model allows for both buy and sell pricing to be determined at the outset
Partners Group Listed Infrastructure Fund

Expertise on performance optimisation
The equity investors are poorly positioned in typical film fund investment vehicles which rely heavily on tax rebates, debt financing and cross collateralisation - with inequitable fee structures, overheads and producer salaries.
“Our fund’s micro managed, portfolio approach to film and venture partner selection, affords the ability to avoid the potential pitfalls of revenue participation in film projects
and the vagaries of excessive fees and charges - thus enhancing the attraction to this form of investment. The use of guarantees rather than immediate funding provides a
greater degree of flexibility for the investors.”
