In the ARD report "Wissen vor Acht Zukunft: Schnupperalarm mit Haut und Haar“ the editorial team has summarized briefly and succinctly what is basically already known for thousands of years in Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and is ultimately also our mantra: Sandalwood has fascinating healing effects. And not only the precious oil, but also the fragrance, Learn more! (available in German only)

Fascinating, rare, valuable, sought-after, productive: that is sandalwood, one of the oldest types of wood in the world. It is in demand all over the world for cultural, natural cosmetic and medicinal purposes, but is threatened with extinction due to overexploitation, among other things. Quintis, the world market leader for sandalwood, has been cultivating sandalwood on sustainably managed plantations in the tropical north of Australia for about 20 years. The environmentally friendly and socially acceptable cultivation not only protects the freely growing sandalwood population, but also contributes to the worldwide binding of CO2 and thus to climate protection: A single tree binds 21 kilogrammes of CO2 per year. In addition, the global buyers of sandalwood finally have a sustainable source.
The Hamburg-based impact investor Jäderberg & Cie ("JC") became Quintis' first international plantation investor in 2010. Other institutional investors include the Harvard University Foundation, the largest sovereign wealth fund in the United Arab Emirates (Abu Dhabi Investment Council) and the Church of England.
JC buys the plantations and commissions Quintis to cultivate and harvest the plantations, then to process the trees, and finally to market and sell the final sandalwood products, such as essential oil, powder and wood in various forms.
Meanwhile, the JC Group owns several sandalwood plantations with over 550 hectares of sandalwood. The special thing: Only through JC is it possible to participate in this impact investment as a private person. An opportunity that has been used by around 1,500 investors to date, who benefit from the economic and ecological potential of sandalwood. Through the Innovestment offer, this is possible from as little as 500 euros.
The term until December 31, 2029 can be shortened by early termination after five years, which reduces the interest rate to 5 percent. You can find more information in the VIB below in the offer profile.
Sandalwood - coveted and revered for thousands of years and now almost extinct due to overexploitation, your investment in the reforested mixed forests in Australia not only protects this medicinal healing raw material, but also has a strong positive effect on fauna, flora, groundwater and climate protection.
Impact investments are usually only accessible to an exclusive group of investors. This is finally different with this investment in climate and species protection, because the minimum investment amount of 500 euros allows more people to get involved. We are also convinced by the fact that Jäderberg & Cie. itself has been successfully investing in the plantations for over 10 years and is in Australia as often as possible to ensure that the trees are thriving.
Sandalwood offers a variety of uses in medicine, culture, cosmetics and nutrition. Hardly any natural raw material can be used in as many different ways as sandalwood, which opens up an almost inexhaustible demand potential. More than one billion people worldwide use products containing sandalwood ingredients.
Sandalwood can hardly be found in the wild anymore. The wild tree populations are acutely endangered due to decades of overexploitation, among other things. The World Conservation Union (IUCN) therefore placed this tree on the Red List of endangered plant species years ago.
No matter who is president, whether stock markets collapse, real estate bubbles burst or governments change - the sandalwood trees continue to grow unimpressed. As a tangible asset, sandalwood has a low fluctuation potential and brings relief to the portfolio due to the low correlation with the volatilities of the capital markets and economic developments. Sandalwood as a tangible asset investment is largely independent of currency fluctuations and therefore suitable as an admixture or to complement an investment portfolio and strategy.
Only Jäderberg & Cie makes it possible to give private investors access to this impact investment, which was otherwise only available to a handful of institutional investors. With the relatively low entry sum starting at 500 euros, an investment in JC Sandalwood Invest 18 can mean entry into the important field of impact investing for many people.
Who is actually behind the project? Here we have compiled information about the company and its team.
Impact investor Peter Jäderberg is an experienced multiple entrepreneur and is considered one of the pioneers in the field of natural asset investments. He has already initiated and successfully managed a variety of international alternative investment projects, mostly with sustainable assets. He has been active in the field of sandalwood since 2010. Peter Jäderberg is involved in various international networks on the topic of impact investing. The misleading by the capital market that their "sustainable investment" products would bring about sustainability in the real economy drives him in publications and presentations.
Not everything that says sustainability is actually sustainable. Experienced impact investor Peter Jäderberg knows that, especially in the case of supposedly green investments on the capital market, only a minimal proportion actually generate a sustainable impact. Why he criticizes the EU legislation on the Green Deal, how he experienced his own first crowdfunding project and where he wants to be in ten years - the native Swede and Hamburg resident finds clear words in the interview.
The professional heart of the business graduate beats for sales, marketing and communication - most of her 25-year career in the field of finance and insurance. She has been working closely with Peter Jäderberg since 2008 and has therefore accompanied the creation and development of JC Sandalwood investments from the very beginning.
Rainer Weitzel is a communications and sales specialist and a firm believer in tangible asset investments. He has been active in the investment world for almost 30 years, including over 20 years in various management positions at international financial services companies. At Jäderberg & Cie. he has found his heart's topic with "Impact Investing" and has been contributing his experience and expertise here since 2018.
After many years as a business lawyer and partner in a medium-sized law firm, Tim Bosse has specialized in the conceptual design of investments. This includes both the asset level and the area of investment products. In the field of sustainable investments, he has been supporting Jäderberg & Cie. with his expertise for more than ten years.
How do we achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals? What transformation is needed in our society to create sustainable value for people and nature? Questions like these move Ulrike Glatz. She is an experienced consultant in the field of impact investing, founder of the Global Impact Alliance and last but not least a valuable and effective reinforcement of the JC team.
The Hamburg-based JC Group of Companies has been operating its own sandalwood plantations managed by Quintis since 2010. Today, almost 350,000 sandalwood trees grow on the five plantations (around 700 hectares) in the tropical north of Australia. Only through the JC Group do co-investors have access to the Sandalwood investment. JC is also the only corporate investor. In 2018, it began marketing sandalwood products and sandalwood. JC furthermore plans to launch its own natural cosmetics line based on sandalwood.
The JC partner Quintis (Australia) Pty Limited was founded in 1997 (at that time under the name TFS-Tropical Forestry Services) and is considered the world's leading supplier of sandalwood and producer of pharmaceutical-grade sandalwood oil. Quintis has decades of expertise as well as state-of-the-art infrastructures and has received multiple certifications and awards. In 2018, Quintis was restructured and privatized. As of today, Quintis cultivates approximately 5.8 million Indian sandalwood trees on its plantations, which cover approximately 12,900 hectares.
Was verbindet Peter Jäderberg mit der schwedischen Umweltaktivistin Greta Thunberg? Und warum gibt es seiner Meinung nach zu wenige echte Impact-Investing-Projekte? Diese Fragen und noch einige mehr beantwortet der Geschäftsführer und Gründungsgesellschafter der Jäderberg & Cie.-Gruppe im Interview. Eine lesenswerte Lektüre für alle, die sich für nachhaltige Vermögensanlagen interessieren und mehr darüber erfahren wollen, was zu wirklich wirkungsorientiertem Investieren gehört.
The value chain at JC begins with the cultivation of the sandalwood as a pure, sustainable raw material. Attention is also paid to purity and environmental compatibility in the processing of the sandalwood and its by-products. One example is the pure natural cosmetics that are sold directly and whose packaging is currently 97 percent biodegradable. In the next step, it will even be completely degradable.
The JC Sandalwood plantations are located in the Australian states of Northern Territory and Queensland. In addition to the Quintis headquarters, the representative office of Jäderberg & Cie is also located in Perth. The precious sandalwood oil is produced at the distillery in Albany.
A good basis for making an investment decision always includes the corresponding business figures.
Get a better overview of the industry and its environment so that you can better assess the market.
Indian sandalwood and its wood and oil products as well as the end products processed from them are sought-after commercial goods all over the world.
In the Western world, sandalwood essential oil is an important ingredient in high-priced perfumes, serious natural cosmetics, and in the future, aromatherapy, food flavoring, and the pharmaceutical industry. "Among other things, sandalwood can contribute to the healing of neurodermatitis and psoriasis, as well as help against multi-resistant germs," says Peter Jäderberg. In Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine, the special properties of sandalwood have been known for millennia. In March 2021, Quintis was able to conclude an offtake agreement with Lanzhou Foci Pharmaceuticals, the largest Chinese manufacturer of traditional Chinese medicines. However, Western conventional medicine has also discovered the healing properties of sandalwood oil. Experts estimate the market potential for Chinese applications in Germany at 20 billion euros.
The natural sandalwood stocks, for example, are almost extinct due to illegal overexploitation in India - the largest supplier of sandalwood to date. Quintis has succeeded in replacing India as the traditional "monopolist" for sandalwood through plantation cultivation in Australia. In doing so, the company has accumulated expert knowledge over many years, which gives it an invaluable edge over new competitors. By cultivating on the Quintis plantations, the high demand for sandalwood can be satisfied. In addition, the damaged tree populations in India are thus given the opportunity to regenerate. JC Sandalwood investors thus contribute to the protection of an endangered tree species and also make a contribution to climate protection. This is because the trees make an active contribution to reducing and binding CO2.
Facts and figures are not everything. Here you will find more information worth knowing as well as regular news.
How do the sandalwood trees develop? What is the impact of the pandemic? What is happening in the development of the sales markets? These and other questions have been answered by the Jäderberg & Cie. team in the status report. (available in German only)
Jäderberg & Cie. was awarded the German Investment Prize for its JC Sandalwood investments in 2017 and 2019. The renowned award, which has been presented annually by the trade magazine BeteiligungsReport since 2008, was presented in the categories "TOP alternative investment" and "TOP impact investment".
Jäderberg & Cie. is also committed beyond its specific tangible assets. The company is also active within its industry as a member of the Forum Nachhaltige Geldanlagen e.V. (Forum for Sustainable Investments) and the Impact Investment Action Alliance TONIIC, and also flies the flag for the Federal Association of German Foundations and as a sponsor of the Hamburg Elbe Philharmonic Orchestra.
Quintis has received several awards and certifications for its sustainable business management and environmentally friendly measures, including ISO 14001 environmental management, ISO 9001 (quality) and AS/NZS 4801 (health and safety) certification.

An investment in Indian sandalwood saves the endangered tree for future generations. Why not include them right away? With the JC Sandalwood Kids campaign, Jäderberg & Cie. offers the opportunity to use the offer to build up assets for the next generation and thus provide children with a financial springboard for the future.
The drawn JC Sandalwood participation is presented in the form of a gift box. It contains a personal text, the document of the gift and a sandalwood gift such as a sandalwood bead bracelet, key ring or colouring book. This gift idea, which is sustainable in every sense, is suitable, for example, for birth, school enrolment or religious occasions such as confirmation or confirmation.

Cash gifts are popular, but rather boring as a note in an envelope. Tangible assets also make good gifts and are better protected against inflation than cash. With our "Sustainability as a Gift" programme, you can simply give your investment as a gift. For children, this means a financial stepping stone for birth, school enrolment, confirmation or initiation. At the same time, your gift contributes to financial education. Just as well, of course, you can also give sustainability as a gift to adults - for an engagement, marriage or even the start of a university degree.
