Q: Why invest in managed forestry?

Forestry and agriculture (agroforestry) are considered to be some of the world’s most stable and consistently reliable “safe haven” asset classes. over 50 years, agroforestry as an asset class has historically outperformed most stocks, bonds, and especially fixed bank deposits. Quick to mature, permanently in high demand, and always profitable, agroforestry is one of the safest and secure ways to hedge your portfolio against market volatility.

Unlike other traditional asset classes, agroforestry is mostly uncorrelated to the financial markets. We have all seen the extreme market volatility caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, forcing most central banks into endless money printing. Agroforestry as an asset class is immune to this type of extreme volatility and market downturns.

Trees do not worry about political changes or turbulence in the markets and industry sectors. Trees just grow and grow, and Plantations International has the perfect way to make this work for you. Not only do we offer you complete risk mitigation via our guaranteed tree replacement policy. Your harvest returns are also underpinned by a contractually guaranteed minimum sales price and by a constantly increasing and demanding market.

Q: What is Agarwood and Oud Oil?

Agarwood is the resinous heartwood that grows inside Aquilaria trees. Plantations International has Aquilaria tree plantations in Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia, and is the global market leader in Agarwood cultivation and sales.

Due to overwhelming demand and extremely limited supply, Agarwood is by far the most valuable and expensive wood in the world. When Agarwood chips are ground and distilled into oil, Agarwood oil, or “Oud Oil” as it is officially known, is the key ingredient in some most luxurious and expensive fragrances in the world.

Top fragrance houses such as Chanel, Calvin Klein, and Versace to name a few, have all incorporated Oud Oil within their premium fragrance lines. Now, with over 1,000 new fragrances launched each year, the global fragrance market has reached a current market valuation of over USD 33 billion and growing!

Agarwood has been used by Christians, Jews, Muslims, and Hindus alike in countless religious ceremonies since the beginning of recorded time. Legend has it that when Adam and Eve were banished from the Garden of Eden, they were allowed to take with them but one item. It was a branch from an Agarwood tree, within which lay one of the most remarkable and valuable natural substances known to man.

It was mentioned in the bible that Nicodemus brought “a roll of myrrh and aloes” weighing about 100 Roman pounds, to be used in preparing for Jesus’ ascension in Heaven. The aloes brought by Nicodemus is Agarwood as referred to in the Hebrew Scriptures and Muslim Hadiths.
