MAY 2018, NEW YORK, NY Ben Alder, Senior Advisor with SVN-Miller Commercial Real Estate, recently attended the RISI Fifth Annual Forest Investment Conference in New York City. Ben joined more than 250 other professionals at the two day conference, which took an in-depth look at timberland investments around the globe and analyzed the opportunities that will unfold in the near future.

Forests cover more than 31% of the globe and contribute to approximately 1% of the gross domestic product throughout the world. The timberland investment space is a mature market and institutional investors manage over $60 billion in investments in US markets alone.

“Understanding the trends and nature of investing in timber markets globally provides a better understanding to me and the SVN Land Group team as to the economic forces shaping our local and regional timber markets,” said Alder.

RISI is the leading information provider for the global forest products industry. The company works with clients in the pulp and paper, wood products, timber, biomass, tissue, nonwovens, packaging, printing and publishing industries to help them make better decisions.
