Natural Resources Timberland Funds
As we prepare to enter H2 2019, Preqin takes a look back at timberland-focused fundraising in 2019 YTD. We break down our data by geographic focus, and examine the unlisted timberland funds currently in market to see what may be in store for this sector over the rest of the year.
Placing 2019 YTD data in context historically, activity appears to have stalled: no funds have held a final close so far in the year. We have provided a sample of investors’ mandates for targeting timberland in the next 12 months alongside the proportions of natural resources investors that have a preference for timberland: 23% of natural resources investors with a preference for timberland are public pension funds, and 71% are located in North America.
