About the Princess Project
The Princess Project, based in Panama, has been open to investors since 1st September 2009. A sustainable timber plantation, the Princess Project boasts a simple annualised ROI of 13.7% p.a., which is guaranteed by an insurance policy for the full 20 years investment term.
The project delivers various environmental benefits, from Carbon sequestration to soil regeneration, as well as socioeconomic benefits to local communities. Unlike most timber investments which leave your money tied up for 25-30 years, Princess Project returns are paid at the end of year 5 and thereafter every 5 years.
Employment and infrastructure from this project will help repair many local bridges and roads, drill 3 water wells and set up a micro lab for Paulownia Tree growing for the next project biomass. This project is by far the most significant development see in the region, creating jobs for virtually the entire community. This project is equivalent to 28% of the entire country’s reforestation efforts in 2008 and as such receives full support from the Panamanian Governmental Department of Environment (ANAM)
