Timberland and Farmland: Working together in a mixed asset portfolio

Published by : Manulife Asset Management

Timberland and farmland assets have been used and tracked as components of institutional portfolios, establishing a strong historical record of performance, low to moderate risk, and favourable diversification characteristics.

While investors have generally treated timberland and farmland as separate asset classes, both offer comparable risk-adjusted returns and inflation protection.
This article provides a comparison of the risk-return profile of a combined timberland/farmland investment to commercial real estate and financial assets. The combined management approach has the potential to reduce the volatility of returns and facilitate the property acquisition process.
