European investors are increasingly putting their money into alternative real estate, according to AAA.
Boston, MA, April 21, 2012 - European investors are increasingly putting their money into alternative real estate, according to Alternative Asset Analysis (AAA).
The alternative investment advocacy group said that a recent report from the Wall Street Journal pointed out that institutional investors are buying up unusual property, worth millions, as they look for alternative ways to make money away from the equity markets.
An example cited by the Wall Street Journal is Barclays Capital PLC’s plan to sell a majority stake in university Partnership Programme, which owns 22,000 student accommodation rooms, to Netherlands-based pension fund PGGM for £1 billion.
Another deal, also taking place in the UK, is Blackstone Group’s sell off of student accommodation blocks in London to Round Hill Capital for £400 million.
“There’s no denying that student accommodation is hot property at the moment,” stated AAA’s analysis partner, Anthony Johnson. He added, “institutional investors have had their fingers burned through their equity investments and are now looking to buy up property that they think will rise in value in the coming years.”
AAA said that this reflects the general attitude of investors at the moment, as they look to diversify their portfolios by seeking alternative asset classes.
AAA added that individuals can invest in real estate in emerging markets, particularly in Latin America, to get the very best deals in up and coming areas. It also recommends investing in sustainable forestry in these regions, as the entry investment needed is relatively low and returns regularly outperform traditional asset classes.
“Timber prices are set to rise in the coming few years and with opportunities to invest from as little as £10,000 through firms like Greenwood Management, which runs plantations in Brazil, there’s rarely been a better time to invest in forestry,” added Mr Johnson.
The demand for timber is increasing as a result of rapid economic growth in China, Brazil and India.

The song gives you easy, simple steps, that you can take to make the world a better place for you and everyone on the planet.
Bartlett, IL, April 20, 2012 -- Michael Droste, a teacher, composer, and musician from Illinois, is giving away a song called "Save The Planet." "I wanted to get the 'Save The Planet' message out to people, and what better way than on Earth Day," said Droste. Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle need to be your new lexicon," he added. "Put your paper and plastics in the recycle bin and not the landfill," he implored. New LED lights are a little expensive now, but over time will get cheaper and brighter. Currently, consumers can still take advantage of compact fluorescent bulbs that offer dramatic savings in power consumption. Droste stated, "Energy conservation, recycling, and trying to live a 'green lifestyle' ate the key to out collective success." Technological advances in solar panels, home power cubes, and electric cars will help, but seven billion people need to change also. "This song send a message of hope and that if we all work together we can truly change and protect our planet," said Droste. It's not just for us, but for future generations. "We are stewards of the planet and not the owners to pillage it's resources blindly," Droste concluded.
The average house uses about 38 percent of its total annual energy use on heating
Producing 1 lb of bread requires 500 ga"ons of water
1 lb of hamburger or steak uses some 2,600 ga"ons of water
The single Save The Planet by Michael Droste is available through the Itunes, Amazon and other online music retailers. You can also download this song for free at SaveThePlanetSong.org http://www.SaveThePlanetSong.org
