This includes where the amount invested upfront by the investor (plus any other investments the Investor has already made in the financial products) is $750,000 or more.
If you fall within Schedule 1, clause 3 of the FMCA as a result of this exclusion, you may not receive a complete and balanced set of information. You will also have fewer other legal protections for this investment. Investments of this kind are not suitable for retail investors. Ask questions, read all documents carefully, and seek independent financial advice before committing yourself.

Terra Verde Investments Limited Partnership: Regular CPI-adjusted income delivering unique environmental and social benefits.
Terra Verde Investments LP is an investment in Regenerative Carbon Forestry.
The Partnership is a lease-based investment opportunity, forecast to deliver strong monthly distributions beginning at 8.5% p.a., while also making a positive difference to New Zealand’s environment and climate change mitigation targets.
In September 2023, the Partnership will be established with the purchase of Puketai South, a 565-hectare property in the Lower North Island of New Zealand.
Terra Verde investors will own the land and the newly planted forest, which will then be leased to New Zealand Carbon Farming (NZCF).
Under the lease, NZCF will have the rights to the Carbon Credits generated by the forest, and therefore take on the potential ups and downs of the NZU market. In return, Terra Verde will receive rental payments forecast to generate steady monthly returns starting at 8.5% p.a.
The lease terms are very favourable: with uncapped annual CPI adjustments, “triple net” terms and a long initial lease term (~16 years, with options to extend up to 30 years).
The right tree in the right place
NZCF are one of New Zealand’s leading experts in managing permanent forests for carbon sequestration and native regeneration using Pinus Radiata, and already manage over 70,000 hectares of their own land in this way. Pine Forests are the most cost-effective way to sequester carbon and are vital to reaching New Zealand’s climate change goals. [i] Pinus Radiata is also a perfect nurse crop for regenerating native forests. Over time, Terra Verde’s ambition is for what started out as an exotic pine forest will be actively managed to revert back to native species, and one day be home to Kauri, Rimu or Totora.
The Partnership is an excellent example of exploring new ways to add value to marginal New Zealand farmland, both from an economic and environmental perspective. Using only Grade 6 properties and above, Terra Verde hopes to increase this marginal land's per-hectare value and profitability while creating new jobs for local communities.
