Environmentally-Friendly Ranch Real Estate Investment

July 20th, 2009


The Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship at Oxford’s Said Business School has published an excellent article entitled “Blended Value Investing: Innovations in Real Estate.”

This article defines Blended Value Investing as investment that focuses not only on meeting defined financial return targets, but on preserving and creating ecological conservation value as well.  The paper focuses specifically on Blended Value Investing in real estate, and begins by listing the vehicles available to invest in such properties.  These vehicles are niche-individual deals, funds, and a marketplace.  Since much ecological and conservation-based real estate investment involves large tracts of land that trade infrequently, niche deals and funds provide the best way to access this kind of investment.
