New Agarwood Investment by Eco Investments

November 15, 2010Article by Ray Withers

Agarwood is one of the world’s most sought-after commodities – so precious that its value is pegged at 1.5 times that of gold! Throughout Asia and the Middle East, oil from Agar is the basis for the most upmarket perfume brands. In the Arab world, it is known as Oud and is a byword for wealth and status. The Gulf States market alone is worth $3.2 billion dollars.

One of the most sought-after commodities in the world, Agarwood is the latest alternative investment being brought to the UK by Eco Investments a division of Property Frontiers, who are the exclusive agent for the pioneering new investment product. Aidan Rankin the firm’s economic advisor explained some of the benefits of the new product.

“Agarwood is so sought after that its value is pegged at 1.5 times that of gold. The oily wood is used in upmarket perfume brands throughout Asia and the Middle East, and in Arab cultures its very name is almost synonymous with wealth and status. With a minimum investment of just $8,310 and excellent seven-year returns, this is more than golden opportunity to invest in a prestige product at an affordable price,” he said.

Aidan went on to list some of the product’s outstanding features, including:

  • Projected returns from $25,088 in 7 years
  • IRR (Internal Rate of Return) of 19.5%
  • Over 2,000 end products
  • Exclusively patented organic process
  • Agar products used by Yves St Laurent and other top brands

Agarwood has enriched Asian communities for millennia, but is still mostly a mysterious entity in the west. Basically, Agarwood is a resin created by the Aquilaria tree – which grows in South East Asia – to fight of a fungal infection. Its value lies in the aroma it gives off, which is so gorgeous that Buddha described it as “the scent of Nirvana”.

Our growers have the exclusive patent for an organic process that ensures 100% production of resin by the Aquilaria Crassna tree, as opposed to 1% in the wild. The use of plantations also ensures that the trees are protected and conserved. Thus this is not only a potentially very lucrative investment, but also a chance to play a part in the conservation of what can only be called one of nature’s miracles.
This is an exclusive opportunity to invest in a product with a distinguished history and proven worth that is fast emerging onto the global market.

Investment property specialists Property Frontiers recommend that investors diversify their portfolios. Because of this the firm has been bringing some excellent alternative investments to the fore. Agarwood is the latest and arguably one of the best of these investment products.
