Plantation Capital / Asia Plantation Capital

Recommended Posts

I'm on a fishing expedition.

Does anyone know of / have experience with, either of these organizations, please ? I believe that back in 2009 one of the originating businesses may have been "OxiGen"

Please feel free to P.M. me.

Thanks in anticipation.

I was approached by them in HKG. You know, the expat financial adviser with a fantastic offer.

They are growing some precious wood (agarwood) and also making some oil that is used for perfumes.

The idea is you buy trees (saplings or full grown) and then then receive dividents yearly, etc... I digged a bit into it, did some research on the net, even visited their HKG office (pretty glamour and fancy place, which is already a red flag..)

I asked a serie of question about certificates of ownership, liquidity of resale market, organisation chart, etc.... Was not interested but digged just for the fun.

To many red flags. Ran in some regulatory problems in SGP. Glamorous office, organise expensive "plantation visits" for investors so you can "see your treez", etc .... When I highlighted that gen expenses look high to me, no answer. 

Checked their Glassdoor reputation, several ex employees posted a bit of "insight"

Conclusion : stay away. Better places to put your money.

I remember these company names from an old thread over on Secrets .... If there isn't much info about them In the public domain then I would keep well away ....

I'll stick with betting on football and the occasional trip up to Atlantic City. If I am going to throw my money around and lose, at least I can blame myself, not some shyster farangs in SEA.
