|Jim Rogers: "Invest in Agriculture and Farmland"|
Farmland has become a popular asset class among investors. By owning a piece of agricultural land, investors expect to see cash flows based on the proceeds. But it requires a big upfront investment and is not exactly liquid. To fill that void, many farmland investment companies are being set up to attract those who want a piece of the land but don’t want the hassle of hiring farmers, planting or irrigating. Dismissing the bubble talk surrounding farmland investment, Mr. Rogers said the investment idea is probably “in its third inning.”As we noted in a previous post, Jim Rogers recently established an Australian farmland investment fund. We at GreenWorld are also involved with a farmland investment in Australia. However, whilst the Jim Rogers farmland fund is targeted at high net worth individuals, the GreenWorld Australian farmland project is targeted at individual retail investors. GreenWorld also offers a unique farmland investment in Africa we discussed in this previous post, as well as a farmland investment in Europe. For those interested in exploring any of GreenWorld's farmland investments, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or ring us on +44-20-3286-2975.
