Our investment programme in this asset class is demonstrative of how we use our 360° investment strategy to ensure our clients can access a wide range of attractive real assets investment opportunities.

As a carbon neutral asset class, which is largely immune to economic cycles, forestry is a sustainable investment and all our managed forests are PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) or FS (Forest Stewardship Council) certified.

Sustainable forest management is today at the heart of societal challenges such as the production of renewable materials, the fight against global warming and the conservation of biodiversity. However, to fully understand these challenges, it is necessary to understand the forest, its history, its sectors, its players and its economy.
