More information on Hedging Against Inflation - Again, Consider Agriculture and Farmland Investments

European farmland investments - an ideal hedge against inflation
There have been a number of articles arguing that one way to hedge against inflation is to use Inflation linked bonds.  That is one option, but if you as an investor do that you are still subjecting yourself to credit risk from the government and your investment will still fluctuate daily in the bond market.

As we have suggested a number of times before - most recently in this post here - we believe agriculture investments are a far better way to hedge against inflation.  Like legendary investor Jim Rogers, we believe farmland investments are the ideal inflation hedge.  Farmland investments have a high positive correlation to inflation - and indeed farmland is often described as "gold with yield" - which is why Jim Rogers frequently advocates farmland as an investment.  Jim Rogers that the agriculture investments sector will be the place to be in the decades ahead, especially as we run out of farmers.  

Whilst many people believe that only large institutional investors can access the farmland access class, as we explained earlier it is now possible for individuals to invest in farmland as well!  To learn more about GreenWorld's options for investing in farmland, please contact us at or ring us on  +44-20-3286-2975.  GreenWorld offers two new agricultural land investments, our farmland investment in Europe and our African farmland investment
