Risk Mitigation

With every investment, there comes an element of risk however small it may be. With forestry investments, the risks are minimal when compared to traditional asset classes, as the majority of forestry by-products are not correlated to any specific markets.

None the less, EcoCrops International takes every step possible to ensure that our clients investments are secure, with insurance policies, and stringent management practices implemented to achieve timely and profitable harvests for our clients.

Natural Risk | Pest, Disease & Fire

Fire: All EcoCrops International’s plantations are position in tropical climates. This means that there is a high percentage of rainfall each year meaning that the ground and vegetation is generally damp therefore almost eliminating the risk of fire. 

In general plantation forestry, the risks of fire are minimal and almost non-existent due to the structure of the plantation. EcoCrops forestry team plants our Bamboo in such a way that if, in the highly unlikely event that a fire were to occur then it would only affect a small area of our vast plantations, this is called using fire breaks. 

Pest & Disease: Like every living being, trees are susceptible to disease just like us so at EcoCrops we only use hybrid clones that are disease resistant to ensure that our crops are healthy for the entirety of the investment. Not only do we use clones but we also treat the plantations with pesticides to ensure the health of the crop.  Having said that our team does keep a close eye on the plantations and if they suspect that any of our crop is affected then they will remove the affected area immediately. 

However in the highly unlikely event that something were to happen to the EcoCrops plantations then we do have full insurance and this is one of the things your plantation maintenance fee pays for. 

Currency | FX Risk

EcoCrops International are particularly mindful of the impact currency fluctuations can have on the ROI when operating in emerging markets. Clients have the option of investing via U.S Dollar ($) or Euro (€) when purchasing their bamboo plantation in Panama. The proceeds created from plantation sales are compiled in U.S Dollar through domestic and international sales. Clients have the option of receiving their harvest proceeds via either currency.

The EUR/USD currency pair belongs to the group of ‘Majors’, a term which refers to the most important currency pairings on the planet. The popularity of Euro Dollar is due to the fact that it gathers two main economies: Europe and the United States of America. This is a widely traded currency pair where the Euro is the base currency and the US Dollar is the counter currency. Since the EUR/USD pair consists of more than half of all the trading volume worldwide in the FX markets, it is almost impossible for a gap to appear, let alone a consequent breakaway gap in the opposite direction.
