“Forest investments, like no other asset, provide a unique combination of inflation protection, low investment risk, attractive investment returns and distinct positive sustainability features. Given all the challenges of today’s investment management industry, few investments can do it better than forests.

Being first in the market, we would have lots of challenges ahead of us during the coming years,” says Harijs Švarcs, founding partner, SG Capital.
