Positive but tempered expectations
Timberland investment continues to be an attractive alternative investment strategy for many investors. Generally, these investors are drawn to stable cash flows, current yields, and the inflation hedging characteristics of the asset class. While interest in timberland investment remains strong, the
increasing number of market investors has led to a rise in sophistication and concern that attractively priced investments may be in shorter supply. Additionally, investors are considering the potential impact of
macroeconomic trends and globalization on the industry.
This survey report was designed to investigate investor profiles, attitudes and certain underwriting criteria, as well as forward looking sentiment on timberlands as a distinct investment class.
