Invest In Tropical Forestry For Secure Financial Future, Say Property Frontiers
September 23, 2009Article by Ray Withers
Leading UK property investment consultancy Property Frontiers have announced the addition of a new alternative forestry investment product in Sri Lanka. The investment in Sri Lankan tropical hardwood products is capable of returning £256,000 from a £15,000 outlay according to the firm.
“We live in a changed world. While we still consider ourselves as property investment specialists, anyone who didn’t know the importance of having a diversified portfolio quickly learned it over the last 2 years. For that reason we are and will continue to diversify the range of investment products we offer, so that our clients can diversify their portfolios with a company that has earned their trust,” said director Ray Withers.
The Sri Lankan forestry product is very much an entry level investment with the minimum outlay being just £10,000.
What’s more the product is acceptable as part of the Self Invested Personal Pensions (SIPPs) scheme, so it fills two criteria; an ideal first investment, it is also an ideal first step towards a secure financial future.
This investment product is potentially so lucrative, because of the massive growth in demand for tropical hardwood products and the fact that supply is physically unable to keep up with the soaring demand.
“In recent years wood flooring has become massively popular, with tropical wood species being among the most popular. They are also among the most expensive because short-supply makes the products difficult to obtain. This makes an investment like this somewhat of a no-brainer, especially when you take it as part of your SIPP,” said Ben Jeffries a sourcing manager with the firm.
These types of investment products would never have been advertised in such a mainstream way in the past. Things have changed because the boom in overseas property investment in recent years made investment the “in thing”. Today’s investors are lucky to have such a wide product range to choose from with Property Frontiers.
