Alternative investors are turning their attention towards real estate in Romania and
                             Bulgaria, according to AAA.

Boston, MA, USA, May 12, 2012 -- Alternative investors are turning their attention
towards real estate in Romania and Bulgaria, according to Alternative Asset Analysis
(AAA).

The alternative investment advocacy group claims that real estate is still a popular
alternative asset class to those who are shying away from equities while the economy
remains volatile. In Europe, investors who were putting their cash into property in Ireland
and Spain have now moved their investments to Bulgaria and Romania.

AAA is basing its analysis on a speech from Denise Hamer of Schoenherr Lawyers, who
spoke at the recent IPD/Property Investor Europe (PIE) Central and Eastern Europe
(CEE) Conference. He talked about how the emphasis for investors has returned to
Eastern Europe, where economies like Romania and Bulgaria are set to emerge as the
better bets in terms of investment.

Mr Hamer said that it was an exciting time for real estate investor in these regions: "It's
going to be very dynamic and volatile, a very exciting investor atmosphere.”

Signs such as the news that a new shopping centre in Romania’s Ploisesti is already 70
per cent let, suggest that real estate is in demand in the former Eastern bloc country.

Returns could be particularly good on real estate assets bought in the capital Bucharest,
which is slowly seeing tourism return and signs of prosperity emerge.

AAA’s analysis partner, Anthony Johnson, said that real estate and other alternative asset
classes offer investors the chance to diversify their portfolios against risk. “These kinds of
assets - including wine, art, timber, commodities and precious metals - are not as closely
correlated with equities as other more traditional asset classes. As a result, when equity
markets lose value, these asset classes hold their value.”

AAA particularly supports ethical investment opportunities, such as the forestry plantation
projects that Greenwood Management and other firms run in developing countries like
Brazil. These projects offer people the chance to buy up a tangible section of plantation
and reap the rewards on an ongoing basis.
