Taaleri to sell the estates of its first forest fund to AXA Investment Managers - Real Assets

Taaleri Private Equity Funds Ltd which is managing Taaleri Metsärahasto I Ky has signed a binding agreement with AXA Investment Managers - Real Assets, acting on behalf of its clients, to sell estates of Taaleri’s first forest fund. The final closing is expected by year end. Upon realisation of the transaction, Taaleri will record a net income of some MEUR 2.7.

The total area of the estates owned by the forest fund is over 14,000 hectares of which the amount of forest land is about 12,500 hectares. Taaleri established the forest fund in late 2012 and it has 140 investors.

”Taaleri’s first forest fund was established about five years ago to enable clients to benefit from the attractive investment opportunity that forestry presents. This has been a strongly performing portfolio, in what is one of the prime forestry regions in the Nordics,” says forestry expert Jyrki Ketola.
