We were skeptical at first, when we were introduced to a potential investment in Indian sandalwood, especially as the plantations of Quintis are located in distant Australia. The returns forecasted by Quintis seemed too high to be credible.
However, the more we investigated the opportunity, the more we became convinced by the concept.
Since January 2010, we have personally travelled to Australia on multiple occasions in order to convince ourselves of the quality of Quintis' plantations, its management and its employees and will continue to do so in future. So far, we have always been very impressed by the competence, expertise and the enthusiasm demonstrated by Quintis' management and staff
We launched our first Indian sandalwood investment in 2010 and we have structured and placed a number of further Indian sandalwood based investments since then, working closely together with Quintis all the time.
Our team continues to travel to Australia regularly and our co-investors and partners also get ample opportunity to meet with the Quintis management team, either during one of our events here in Europe or when travelling to Australia personally.
