Natural factors determine the amount of payouts.
Investing in Fine cacao means investing in a natural raw material.Thus, the success depends on natural factors such as the climate,soil,etc., which have an influence on the cacao quantity and quality as well as on proceeds from sales that can be achieved on the market. Every change of one of the calculation parameters(such as harvest yield, quality and price) has an influence on the total result.We speak of a good development,if we can harvest much cocoa of high quality after a very good growth period for a very good price. In this not unlikely event we expect returns of higher payout. Bad development of cacao growth, bad market prices and bad harvest are also poossible. Such an event could lead to small return.
