In the current low-yield environment, investors are increasingly looking to alternative asset classes in order to try to enhance returns.
Commodities, such as oil and metals, have historically been one area some investors have eyed in a bid to achieve higher returns. However, these assets have clearly lost their appeal as the investor environmental awakening continues.
So, should investors simply avoid the natural resources space? This would be a mistake, in our view, as investors would miss out on one of the market’s most compelling under-the-radar investment areas – forestry.
