Brazil is Attracting Alternative Investors, says AAA
Brazil is attracting a huge amount of investment attention at the moment, claims AAA, who
urges investors to consider the Latin American country as a place to make some cash.
Boston, MA, USA, April 14, 2012 -- Brazil is attracting a huge amount of investment attention at the
moment, claims Alternative Asset Analysis (AAA), who urges investors to consider the Latin American
country as a place to make some cash.
A large number of people who had never before considered alternative investments are now taking a
closer look at some possibilities in emerging economies, such as Brazil, China and India. “It’s not as
easy as it once was to invest in stocks and shares and make your fortune in the US,” claims AAA’s
analysis partner, Anthony Johnson.
“Instead, many of us are looking to alternative asset classes, such as real estate, forestry and impact
investing in countries that are experiencing rapid economic growth.”
Brazil is set to host the Olympics in 2016 and the FIFA World Cup in 2014. Both of these events have
ensured that the local steel industry is booming. AAA said that this has meant growth for the demand for
sustainably produced charcoal.
Mr Johnson explained: “Measures have been taken to discourage the steel industry from using
unsustainable timber in their charcoal. As a result, plantations, such as the one managed by Greenwood
Management, are likely to see huge demand for their ethical products.”
Plantations, such as the ones managed by Greenwood, usually focus on fast-growing, hardy species
that can be used in charcoal manufacture, furniture making and construction. AAA said that the demand
for timber from sustainable sources is likely to increase further in the coming years as China and India
continue to seek out raw materials.
Anyone interested in investing in Brazilian timber plantations can do so from as little as around $15,000.
“AAA advocates ethical forestry investment as a way to make a difference while making money.
“Ensuring timber is grown using sustainable forestry management methods helps locals to safeguard
the future of the industry for the next generation,” added Johnson.
