  AAA is backing a recent feature by Market Watch, which claims investments in green asset
          classes will increase alongside general interest among the US population.

Boston, MA, December 21, 2012 - Alternative Asset Analysis (AAA) is backing a recent feature by
Market Watch, which claims investments in green asset classes, such as timberland, agriculture
and sustainable energy will increase alongside general interest in these issues among the US
population.

A crisis such as Superstorm Sandy can really make the threat of climate change hit home to
people in the US, who don’t generally have to worry about the impact of climate change in their
day-to-day lives. Experiencing some of the weather phenomena that blight other areas of the
world can make Americans sit up and take notice of the issues and want to help through their
investment choices.

This is according to AAA, an alternative asset analysis group, which endorses green investment. It
is keen to underline the claims made in the Market Watch article, which talks about how climate
change is increasingly an issue in the public consciousness. It stated that people who are taking
green issues seriously can make a difference through impact investing. It said, ‘Globally, the
environment has been woven into impact investing through programs and products that address
water, waste and energy.’

The article adds that things like an upcoming program about climate change that is due to air on
the Showtime Network in 2013 and the recent climate talks in Doha being covered on the news all
help to inform people about the threats.

Those who then go on to discover how green investments can help to reduce the impact of climate
change, while helping investors to see generous returns, often decide to take the plunge and try
alternative investments and impact investing.

AAA supports forestry investment through businesses like Greenwood Management, which runs
sustainably managed plantations in Brazil and Canada. AAA’s analysis partner, Anthony Johnson,
explained, “Investing in trees can help to reduce carbon in the atmosphere, providing timberland
is managed sustainable.”
