Our investment philosophy is based in five tenets:
Aligning food and finance – there is no more important investment than one that secures our food supply. Managed effectively, these investments will also generate excellent financial returns.
Regenerative agriculture – the health of the ecosystem as a whole determines the profitability and sustainability of an agribusiness. A regenerative approach sees productivity increases (in land and livestock), cost reductions and improved profitability, and significant ongoing environmental benefits.
Operational excellence – we only work with those agribusinesses that have a commitment to optimal performance and productivity, a continual focus on improvement, and a clear strategy for future success.
Market driven not production driven – agricultural sustainability lies in identifying opportunities based on what the market wants rather than what we wish to produce. This requires an integrated supply model which ensures a clear pathway to market, captures margins across the supply chain, increases prices transparency and reduces volatility, and shifts focus from producing commodities to products.
Agriculture is an intergenerational investment – successful investment in agriculture may require a long term approach; patience in creating lasting wealth and value.
