Teak plantations have historically been the privilege of institutional investors and sovereign wealth funds. Today, however, increased awareness of the low volatility and predictable growth characteristics of the asset have led to steadily increasing demand for the inclusion of teak trees in investor clients' overall portfolios. Whether individuals are involved in the growth of teak from saplings or choose to invest in semi-mature plantations, engaging relatively early in a tree's growth cycle creates potential for significant future capital gain. Liquidation of the asset can be achieved in two ways: by the felling and sale of the mature teak directly onto the timber market or through the forward selling of stock on future delivery dates direct to manufacturers.
