So I just got back from a couple of weeks in Europe. Browsing the net, my attention was caught by an ad for Brazil forestry investment program. Checked the website and the site reminded me of the website of our "friends" from GeniusFunds (unfortunately I couldn't save any of the articles about GeniusFunds after my site got hacked some time ago).



The company that I focused my attention at was Greenwood Management. The domain name is registered in Denmark

Greenwood Management

I checked the Danish company registry and the company is registered with CVR# 31629373. So far so good. But when I got to the details of the contact us page... well it didn't look so good:

So, remembering that GeniusFunds were renting a virtual office in Limassol, Cyprus I was expecting similar story. Oh well, not really. Most of the address are typical residential properties (I know people do business from home but com'on this is an "investment" firm). Thank you Google street view.

Anyway, the reason I started this article was to find out if anybody has a successful story to share about any Brazil Forestry program or any thoughts. Please feel free to leave a comment or email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . My mind sees a red light if someone promisses return of 14+ per cent annually with an investment term of 8-10 years (enough time to accumulate a good retirement fund and disappear).

The brochure can be found here and now Greenwood Management has a "Sale"
