At a glance below, you can see below the projected income annually for each asset. This will show you how we have calculated the percentage return, on average, year-on-year. This quoted rate is known as the Internal Rate of Return.
Assets earn income depending on harvest cycles. When producing, beehives and blueberry bushes earn twice a year while solar panels earn each month. Both beehives and solar panels take time to swarm and install respectively. This means there may be a delay before your asset starts production.
Farming assets typically take time to generate income. Bee colonies require time to mature and increase the volume of honey, wax and propolis they can produce. You can expect a lower income in year one, with increases over the next nine years of the hive’s life. Solar panels are ordered, a site selected and contracted, installed and then tested. When the site is live, you will start to accrue income and this will be paid to you in line with the landlord’s agreed payment schedule.
The projections have been made taking into account a number of factors including weather, market price and yield. For example, when calculating how much electricity a solar panel will produce to sell, one of the factors we looked at was records of the past 20 years of weather in South Africa.
