The durian industry is seeing skyrocketing demand from China. I'm now helping a fledgling durian plantation find investors.
They've structured the investment like this:
1. You buy the title to a number of trees
2. Based on how many trees you buy, you're then entitled to a proportionate share in the profits on the entire plantation come harvest time.
3. The plantation is expected to yield profits for 60 years +.
The pertinent characteristics of this investment seem to be:
1. It's high risk for the first 6 years (when it matures and bears fruit)
2. But after the tree matures, you get a profit share for decades to come.
How do I find funds out there that would invest in a scheme like this? I imagine pension funds could allow for a small allocation in alternative investments like this?
Sorry if this is in the wrong forum. But it seemed like the most appropriate place to post this.
