Why Agribusiness

Institutional Investment

  • Agribusiness investment is categorized as one of the last sub-asset classes not generally held by institutional investors. An argument for agricultural investment is the historical underinvestment into the overall industry which is now about to unfold. When capital is being allocated into the industry, asset prices will increase.
  • The most common way for Institutional investors to obtain access to the agribusiness industry is via futures traded commodities, which can be very cyclical. Alternatively, agribusiness companies that are publicly listed are generally a derivative of the direct exposure and subject to market movements/volatility.
  • Direct agricultural investments are not easy accessible for private- and institutional investors, as most agribusiness companies are private owned.
  • JB Equity is able to source and offer agribusiness investments and ensure that professional management is in place to safeguard and grow the deployed capital.
