This fourth annual conference will help end investors understand different strategies and risk and reward exposures that are being pursued by fund managers within the ag space, and provide the opportunity to evaluate the global agriculture investing landscape and meet the managers with investable product that are helping to shape the burgeoning space.
Host HighQuest Partners, a leading global consultancy focused on agribusiness and agriculture investing, has provided an event that features the most relevant and contemporary content to attract significant attendance by investors and representation by key ag fund managers with investable product.
â€œWe are the conference series that people attend to identify where money is moving within the ag space,â€ said Jared Rose, director of GlobalAgInvesting, noting that last yearâ€™s conference was attended by close to 600 people representing over $3.5 trillion in aggregated institutional assets by attending institutional investors, over 25 million acres under cultivation by attending companies, and over $12.5 billion of farmland assets managed by attending agricultural fund managers.
Philippe de LapÃ©rouse, chairman of Global AgInvesting, added that the agricultural sector is fast attracting the interest of institutional and private capital after suffering from decades of underinvestment.
â€œSeveral factors, such as exceptionally strong fundamentals, inflation hedging, and low correlation with other asset classes, are proving to be instrumental in the worldâ€™s closer examination of ag investments,â€ said de LapÃ©rouse. â€œAdd to that the fact that agriculture needs about 160-210 million net new acres of farmland worldwide to meet expected demand over the next decade and one canâ€™t help but realize the enormous investment potential in this sector.â€
Global AgInvesting will explain the myriad of variables for positively directing investments in agriculture, such as a growing world population, improving diets in the developing world, and new demand for biomass feed stocks, and bring them into perspective for evaluation by attendees.
