History of Institutional Investment in Farmland

April 20, 2017

Over the past three decades, farmland investing has grown exponentially from a “niche” investment dominated by a few large pension plans and insurance companies to a mainstream institutional real asset class that increasingly can be accessed by retail-oriented investors.

To better understand today’s environment and where institutional farmland investing may be heading in the future, Julie Koeninger, CFA, product strategist for timber and agriculture at GMO, LLC (also an early industry participant in her own right) partnered with HighQuest Partners to research the industry’s history in detail – back to its roots in the 1970s and earlier – and asked the “pioneers” of institutional farmland investing to share the lessons they’ve learned that can be applied to today’s global farmland/agricultural investment landscape.
