WFS is an independent forestry asset manager, which identifies niche forestry markets such as the spectacular Nordmann fir Christmas tree phenomenon, providing our clients with both stability and diversification not normally found in traditional investment areas.
Agro-forestry investments have become a popular focus of investment over a number of years due to the areas return/risk profile. Historically the area has been dominated by pension funds, land owners and institutional investors.
The investments negative correlation to other traditional markets such as stocks and shares offers the astute investor the opportunity to lower investment volatility and increased overall returns providing an optimum route for portfolio diversification.
Biological growth is what separates timberland from other investments and is estimated to be the most important return driver. The effect of biological growth is two dimensional. Not only do the trees grow in volume, but as they grow, they also turn into higher value products.
Through WFS Ireland, investors are able to invest reasonably small amounts into agro-forestry, with options available from as little as €9,140 upwards to €250,000 offering the investor the unique opportunity to invest directly into large scale agro-forestry projects at ground level. WFS Ireland will personalize the investment to suit your individual requirements.
WFS clients will also have a dedicated Account Manager appointed to them with direct contact via telephone and email, thus offering greater control of their investment holdings.
