The funds will offer qualifying investors access to various forestry and agroforestry global investment opportunities all designed to target high returns over different life cycles.

Initially, the ICC will comprise of three standalone incorporated cells: The Sustainable Teak & Agarwood Fund, The Sustainable Red Fund and The Sustainable Agroforestry Fund. The names of these funds may change shortly to reflect the advisory partnerships in place.
