Our history

IWC’s direct timberland investment management has existed since inception 1991. In 2018 the direct management was re-grouped around the current investment team and in 2021 changed name to Asset Management + (‘AM+’).

Based on team members experiences with manager selection and oversight of investments on behalf of institutional investors, decades of interaction with sophisticated timberland investors, as well as a general continuing disconnect between return and management fee levels, and inability of the industry to accommodate increasing transparency and alignment requirements of investors, AM+ principals sought to disrupt the industry by seeking to offer the true timberland investment characteristics (low volatility, inflation hedge, …) in a cost-effective offering tailormade to the individual investor.

In defining the investment universe to achieve disruption, AM+ has high conviction in Fundamental Core Timberland and Core Carbon Schemes.

From the outset, AM+ has and will maintain and build local presence in our investment regions.

The asset management + concept, whereby we see investors as unique, allows us to adapt structure, strategy, discretion, administration etc. to continuously adapt to investor requirements.
