Staff Report

Domain Capital Group, LLC, a comprehensive private investment services firm, today announced its subsidiary, Domain Timber Advisors, LLC, assumed investment responsibilities for a forestland portfolio in the U.S. Southeast and Pacific Northwest. The transfer of management marks the ninth separately managed account transferred to Domain Timber since 2017.

"I believe timberland investors appreciate Domain’s active management strategy and unique approach to create additional value across portfolios," said Jack Izard, vice president of investments at Domain Timber Advisors. "In my opinion, what distinguishes us is our creative sourcing of ancillary income, well-executed timing of timber sales, and thoughtful design and preparation of tracts for higher and better use markets, among other differentiators. When appropriate, we also work closely with our clients to liquidate tracts at opportune times, based on local supply and demand dynamics, to help meet their investment goals."

The transfer involves eight tracts across Georgia, North Carolina, Washington and Oregon. The Southeast tracts are located near major population centers and have the potential to be sold into higher and better use markets. With this transfer, the company now manages nearly 250,000 acres of timberland (not including environmental fund assets).

Domain Timber’s separately managed account offerings provide clients with more flexibility and control of asset portfolios. This approach allows investors to maximize portfolio diversification or potentially reduce risk exposure. As such, clients can establish separate account mandates based on asset size, geography and yield versus net return requirements, among other factors.
