Investment strategy

Timber Investments by Aquila Capital

are long-term investments. Their returns do not correlate with equity markets and can offer protection against inflation. The most important driver of returns is the biological growth of the trees: the older and larger they become, the more valuable they are. The increasing demand in emerging markets and hence connected income growth, as well as increasing construction activity also increase the value of forestry investments.

Aquila Capital is advised by Pöyry management consulting, an international consulting and engineering company.

For institutional investors

We are pleased to design tailor-made investment solutions according to your requirements.
