Business angels are spreading their wings into the forestry sector, with Edinburgh-based syndicate Par Equity preparing to launch a £10 million timber fund.
The firm, founded by Paul Atkinson in 2008, believes that at least 50 investors will pile into the fund, which will probably feature a mix of individuals and institutions.
Par Equity has already tested the waters with a trading partnership over the past two years, which brought together 18 investors to buy around £2m-worth of forestry.
Atkinson told Scotland on Sunday that Par Forestry Partnership had bought three forests in Scotland – at Armadale in West Lothian, in Ayrshire and along the M74 motorway – and that his firm expects to close a deal in Wales in the coming week.
“This is a long-term form of investment, because it can take 35 years for trees to grow to the right size to be harvested,” Atkinson explained.
