THE INCOME BUILDER : A revolutionary way to Invest In Biofuels
(PRWeb UK) June 13, 2010
Aston Lloyd, the leading global investment company, has launched an exciting new project, the Aston Lloyd Income Builder.” It’s a one of a kind investment product which offers investors the opportunity to participate in the green energy and biofuel market by investing via a simple monthly investment plan.
Low entry and high returns, this is what investors need to know when choosing an investment to put their hard-earned money to work into. Michael Lucas, CEO of Aston Lloyd Plc stated “we realise these are difficult times in the markets, yet there are some investment opportunities that should not be missed.”
Aston Lloyd’s research analysts have been following the biofuel industry’s developments for over three years and the most compelling case for investing in this field has been the legislation imposed the around the world; mandating the use of renewable energy by the transportation industry. In the EU, legislation has said that at least 10% of all transportation energy must come from renewable sources by 2020, and investing in bio-fuels today can be compared to investing in companies such as Yahoo (NasdaqGS: YHOO), Microsoft (NasdaqGS: MSFT), or Google (NasdaqGS: GOOG), at their IPO or similar to having invested in big oil companies such as British Petroleum (LSE: BP) at the time when oil traded at $20 per barrel.
In order to make biofuel investing more affordable, Aston Lloyd has released a new investment product called an “Income Builder.” This product allows people the opportunity to make an investment in twenty four easy instalments over a two year period. Aston’s Income Builder has been launched in order to simplify the investment cycle in a biofuel plant known as Jatropha. Jatropha’s potential to help halt the effects of climate change are vast, reducing 66-68% of the greenhouse gas emissions when compared with fossil diesel. Successful jatropha plantations are few and far between. Success stories are found with companies which employ a social and sustainable investment model. Such is the case with Aston Lloyd’s clients plantation management company Waterland International, who have over 10 years of proven track record in Jatropha and are considered the industry leader.
Mr. Lucas added “Investing in the biofuel market requires careful research. We don’t expect all biofuels to benefit from the governmental legislation.” Investing in this industry sector is not without its woes. Under the European Union's new Renewable Energy Directive (RED) suppliers of biofuel will have to demonstrate that their biofuel did not cause deforestation.
“This demonstrates that if you invest in the wrong biofuel company or plantation, you may find yourself on the wrong side of the trade” stated Mr. Lucas.
Aston Lloyd’s Jatropha project is a one of a kind success story. It meets all of the EU’s criteria for a clean, sustainable and ethical bio-fuel. Aston’s project is reforesting lands and protecting existing rainforests and the Jatropha oil produced on Waterland’s plantations is already in use in the European Union.
