Oxigen sets up forestry land fund

Oxigen Investments is looking to launch a forestry/agroforestry fund for retail investors in the New Year.

The Oeic is to be distributed through IFAs next year. Minimum investment is £25,000.

Investors will be able to buy forestry and agroforestry land holdings across Brazil and Malaysia in return for an annual rental income of 10 per cent, paid quarterly over five years.

The fund will follow a similar strategy to an institutional fund soon to be launched by the firm.

Oxigen was created in 2004 for private and institutional investors to buy trees and agricultural land on commercial plantations in tropical countries.

Managing director Guy Conroy says: “This fund gives diversity and security for the investor.”

Leading Edge Adviser Forum chairman Ben Stevens says: “It makes sense from an investment remit, not just from a planet-friendly point of view.”
