FUND NAME

Awatea Forest Fund

Awatea is a retail investment fund targeting 5,000 hectares of premium forest assets across New Zealand.

Establishing a diversified portfolio of forest assets, targeting regular returns and capital enhancement via biomass growth, the harvest of logs and sequestration 
& sale of carbon.

TARGETED IRR

Secondary Market

With over 2500 investors in 90 forests and 4 farms, from time to time we have investors looking to sell their shares before harvest.

Secondary market shares typically range in price from $50,000 to $250,000. They present an opportunity to buy into an established forest that is closer to harvest. 

Advantages of this  are:

• The forest has passed the risk stage of establishment.
• The area of trees and stocking rate are quantifiable.
• Shorter term investment.
• All major work has been completed so minimal holding costs.
