Announcing EKO tokens. Institutional grade forestry-backed investment.
Impact investing made easy for everyone.
We identify the best sustainable forests, then issue EKO tokens backed by the value of these forests.
You purchase EKOs. Get started with €200, or buy as many tokens as you want.
The value of your EKOs grows steadily at 3% p.a., powered mainly by photosynthesis. Choose to hold or sell — long before trees are mature.
Green investing made easy for everyone.
Our tokens are backed by trees – they’re like gold that grows.
Driven by predictable biological growth, rising land and wood prices.
All transactions are recorded transparently on a distributed ledger.
Photosynthesis removes carbon from the air. More forests = healthier planet.
Wood is a renewable resource, making wisely-managed forests a sustainable practice.
Buy, or sell with the click of a button, even before the trees are mature.
From 1993 to 2017, the National Council of Real Estate Investment Fiduciaries (NCREIF) Timberland Index in USA has yielded returns comparable to the S&P 500 index with much lower volatility*. As an asset class, forestry investments are considered less volatile and lowly correlated to other popular asset classes such as equities and bonds.
Traditionally, timberland investments have provided stable and predictable long term growth along with a positive impact on the climate. By issuing EKO tokens, Ekofolio enables ordinary investors to benefit from this unique asset class and create impact, whilst lowering transaction costs and creating liquidity.
*The Sharpe Ratio is a common metric of risk adjusted returns. S&P 500: 0.41%, US Timberland: 0.64%
