Ekonomisk bäring/Affärsmodell

Our strategy of market creation through financial inclusion involves making the asset class available to broad base of non-traditional investors, who have investible capital of between US$50 – 1M. We do this through ’Tokenization’ of specific forests, making them broadly accessible, tradeable before maturity and thus, liquid. This has the potential to address the very specific problems with the forestry asset class that have traditionally deterred large groups of investors – i.e. large tickets, illiquidity, and costly private equity governance models.
