Speakers from Gresham House, Preqin and PRI discuss the commercial Forestry opportunity - November 2019

Commercial forests are sustainable real assets, offering the potential for long-term capital growth, underpinned by the biological growth of the trees.

 

With minimal correlation to bonds and equities, positive correlation to inflation, and positive environmental and social attributes, investing in forests makes a lot of sense.

Which is why, towards the end of last year,  Gresham House held a ‘Forestry Teach-In’, to discuss the potential financial and environmental benefits of forestry investment in the UK.

With guest speakers from Preqin and the PRI, we looked at how Forestry can generate positive impact in addition to market returns, particularly regarding issues such as climate change and those related to the Sustainable Development Goals.

 

Watch a round up from our speakers below:

Historical performance is no guarantee of future performance. Capital at risk.

Returns are driven by timber prices, which Gresham House forecast will continue to rise, as demand for timber continues to increase globally. Whilst this is not guaranteed, the World Bank forecasts that global timber demand will quadruple by 20501, driven by population growth, urbanisation and rising average GDP per capita.
