We’re delighted to announce the continuation of the Alternative Investment Forum with the 12th edition.

The 2020 event will welcome institutional investors from across the globe to discuss investment opportunities in timber and agriculture to diversify their portfolios and achieve healthy returns.

Investors, Funds and service providers will enjoy two dynamic days of presentations and 1:1 business meetings. Key themes on the 2020 programme will include sustainable and green investments, the impact of climate change on real assets, the power of new technologies in driving sustainable and greener investments, end-user trends and more. The dual focus on timber and agriculture enables investors to discover the complimentary role these assets can play in a portfolio and to spot the best ventures available in both.
