** Why is Agriculture becoming so popular with investors
------------------------------------------------------------

Hello!

The news of Chinas Black Monday might have been more abrupt than most commentators had predicted - however it certainly wasn't something they didn't see coming. As the Chinese Stock exchange dropped 9% it sent reverberations around the world - nearly all markets were effected. Its seems in the most part that the markets recovered as the day went on, but it reiterated why Agricultural based investments are becoming so popular.

In the current investing climate, defined largely by economic uncertainty, low interest rates and volatile equity markets; investors are seeking out assets and sectors that display certain characteristics.

Of particular interest are assets supported by solid, long-term fundamentals. Assets that offer preservation of capital, low volatility and an opportunity to generate income, mark the highest. Throw in an investment performance that is not correlated to the performance of traditional financial markets and most boxes are easily ticked. From investing in shares to investing in farmland, agriculture investments tick many boxes for today’s investors looking to the future, and remain high on the agenda of both institutions and private individuals alike.


** Rising Demand and Diminishing Supply - the Basis for Agriculture Investments
------------------------------------------------------------

If the goal is to acquire assets that are non-correlated and inflation-linked, and which retain value throughout all economic cycles, then the best bet is of course well-managed,productive agricultural land.
For many investors, the ‘Real Asset’ approach is preferred as it means the investment is secured by land ownership giving not only capital appreciation, but also capital preservation and income in perpetuity for generations to come. And by investing in productive farming in another country / economy e.g. New Zealand it gives further diversification to the portfolio.

Prospective forest farmland investors should understand however, that specific expertise is required during the acquisition and due diligence process in order to identify and manage suitable assets.
