The Jäderberg & Cie.-Group was founded in 2010 to specifically manage the JC Sandalwood project. Meanwhile, we have become an entrepreneurial, catalytic impact investor with a growing portfolio. Our HQ is based in the harbor of beautiful Hamburg, Germany.
OUR INVESTMENT STRATEGY
Our investment portfolio consists purely of unique projects with disruptive or transformative impact, massive sustainability, and extraordinary long-term profitability.
We only engage with projects to which we can add substantial value, be it in an operationally responsible role, or simply as an active lead investor. As Impact Guardian, we support the project to identify, communicate, and measure the sustainability impact. We ensure value and mission alignment both with the project staff and the shareholders. Furthermore, we attract like-minded co-investors, structuring and hosting the co-investment vehicles.
OUR INVESTMENT PORTFOLIO
Areas of investment – besides our flagship project „JC Sandalwood“ – are Regenerative Agriculture/Forestry (with a focus on medicinal plants), Food Distribution, Ocean Health and Circular Economy.
OUR IMPACT NETWORK & TOPICS
We are an engaged member of international impact organizations and networks like Toniic, Bundesinitiative Impact Investing, TTI, Global Impact Alliance and active in several working groups.
One overlapping topic we are pursuing is to create and integrate Carbon, Biodiversity, and Social credits in f Haone single token.
Not least, we are proud to be a sponsor Hamburg’s iconic Elbphilharmonie – and happy to host our partners at a concert.
In 2009, Quintis opened up their monopolistic project to a handful of international institutions, such as the Abu Dhabi sovereign wealth fund, the Harvard University endowment fund, and the Church of England. We were the first to sign an investment agreement, and the only one among this exclusive circle of investors offering the opportunity of co-investment to other interested parties. Currently, we own a total of 575 hectares with more than 270.000 sandalwood trees, spread over 4 sites in the north of Australia. Today, 37% of these sandalwood forests belong to Jäderberg & Cie., 63% to our 1,500 co-investors – both individual as well as institutional investors. Thus, we ensure an alignment of interest between us and our co-investors in the success of this venture.The ownership of the forests is with unitized tree trusts, making an illiquid asset fully tradeable in small quantities (single-digit dollars per unit). The JC Sandalwood structure also allows avoidance of double-taxation.
OUR APPROACH FOR THIS PRIVILIGED CLUB DEAL
There is no management fee, nor initial costs such as structuring costs or commission.
Ongoing management and investment services will be provided by JC as contributions into the SPV during its term. General running expenses until harvest are financed out of the liquidity reserve or the unit holdings.
OUR MANAGEMENT PARTNER IN AUSTRALIA
The experienced managers and staff of DFK Gooding Partners are entrusted with the accounting and administrative matters of the Australian JC Sandalwood companies, as well as the management of the unit tree trust registry. In the past and hopefully soon again, we hosted guided tours with our investors to meet Quintis and Gooding Partners, and, of course, to visit our forest sites, the nursery, the distillery and much more.
