Timber as an asset class has been growing in popularity globally due to its low-risk and diversifying nature. Until recently, most institutional investment in timber was in the USA, This is changing now as more and more European institutional investors are choosing timber as part of their alternative investment portfolio. Amongst the investors who have discovered the unparalleled advantages of timber include pension funds, endowments, insurance companies and family offices.

As a very attractive long term asset class, investment in timber has proved to be the ultimate inflation hedge with stable annual returns of over 10% for the past 20 years.
