The Best Risk/Reward Ratio Of Any Investment Sector—How Money Grows On Trees
Dec. 7, 2010, Darien, Panama: Historically, timber has enjoyed the best risk/reward ratio of any investment sector.
Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,
As I explained yesterday, one of the topics discussed during our Emergency Offshore Summit last week was the importance, in the current global climate, of putting some of your available investment funds into foreign real estate, especially productive land.
Specifically, for example, land for farming timber.
Historically, timber has enjoyed the best risk/reward ratio of any investment sector. Depending on whose chart of historical returns you consult, timber as an asset category has produced an annualized ROI in the 12% to 15% range every year since they started keeping records on investment risk versus return.
A friend calls timber "a long-held secret of the world's wealthiest people." It's low volatility, a hedge against inflation, and an asset class that operates independent of the stock market.
