Now could be great time for timber investors, claims FRA


      

Seattle, United States, January 24, 2012 -- Forestry Research Associates (FRA) said that now is a great time to have investments in forestry as the construction industry in the US begins to recover from its long slump.

A recent report in Zacks Investment Research said that recent figures suggest that 2012 could be the year that the construction industry grows again. This is great news for those who own trees or have cash invested in to timber-based exchange traded funds, who have been hanging on to their assets in recent years. Many investors would have avoided selling their timber assets over the past couple of years due to the slowing demand in the construction industry. As a result, their trees will be even larger now and will be worth more as a result.

“This is the great selling point for timber investments,” stated FRA’s analysis partner, Pete Collins. He added, “If timber prices look anything less than strong, investors can simply hold onto their assets and wait until the prices increase. In the meantime, their assets grow further and are worth more when they finally choose to sell.”

The report by Zacks also claims that forestry has an extremely low correlation with traditional asset classes and therefore, provides an extremely effective way to diversify a portfolio. FRA claims that more and more investors are turning to alternative asset classes, such as timber, to help them to spread the risk within their investment portfolio.

Zacks' report talks about direct investment routes, such as through plantation schemes like the one run by Greenwood Management in Brazil, where investors buy up pieces of plantation land and receive returns based on the cyclical sale of timber assets. It also talked about investing in funds that are based on timber, which can offer a slightly more risky option for those interested in putting some of their cash in forestry.
