PHILOSOPHY - OVERVIEW
 
       
 
Hancock Timber Resource Group (HTRG) was founded in 1985 by foresters and investment professionals who believed that timberland provided investors with an attractive asset class to further diversify their portfolios. Today, we develop and manage timberland portfolios for pension funds, insurance companies, taxable corporations, endowments and family offices.

While we consider timberland to be a long-term investment, it is also a dynamic asset class. By actively managing our clients' forests for more than just timber, we are able to maximize returns for our investors before, during and after trees are harvested. Good stewardship is an essential part of this process, and we consider a strong environmental record as central to business success. It fosters a business culture that gives us the operational flexibility to be successful. It also helps us meet our fiduciary and social responsibilities as well as the public's needs. More important, good stewardship fundamentally helps to reduce operating risk associated with our investors' portfolios.
