Agcapita remains a market leader as one of Canada’s most experienced farmland investors and the only registered plans (RRSP, RESP etc) eligible farmland funds in an asset class that is seeing increasing and well-deserved attention from mainstream investors. Agcapita believes that farmland funds continue to show great appeal to conservative investors concerned with inflation and the volatility of their existing public equity investments. Canadian farmland has similar inflation hedging qualities to gold but with an ongoing cash yield that gold lacks. Canadian farmland returns have exhibited low volatility and this combined with higher absolute returns equate to a favorable Sharpe ratio. Agcapita believes farmland is a safe investment, that supply is shrinking and that unprecedented demand for “food, feed and fuel” will continue to move crop prices higher over the long-term.
