Timberland investments are illiquid and their value is dependent on many conditions beyond the control of portfolio managers. Estimates of timber yields associated with timber properties may be inaccurate, and unique varieties of plant materials are integral to the success of timber operations; such material may not always be available in sufficient quantity or quality. Governmental laws, rules and regulations may impact the ability of the timber investments to develop plantations in a profitable manner. Investments will be subject to risks generally associated with the ownership of real estate-related assets and foreign investing, including changes in economic conditions, currency values, environmental risks, the cost of and ability to obtain insurance and risks related to leasing of properties. Certain products and services may not be available to all entities or persons.
Responsible investing incorporates Environmental Social Governance (ESG) factors that may affect exposure to issuers, sectors, industries, limiting the type and number of investment opportunities available, which could result in excluding investments that perform well.
ESG integration incorporates financially relevant ESG factors into investment research in support of portfolio management for actively managed strategies. Financial relevancy of ESG factors varies by asset class and investment strategy. Applicability of ESG factors may differ across investment strategies. ESG factors are among many factors considered in evaluating an investment decision, and unless otherwise stated in the relevant offering memorandum or prospectus, do not alter the investment guidelines, strategy or objectives.
