Wealth Managers Investing in Agriculture

For family offices, registered investment advisors, Chartered Alternative Investment Analysts and any other planners who help their clients understand and access alternative investments, Harvest Returns is an ideal place to find private offerings in farmland and timberland. Persistently low interest rates, record high equity market levels, and a commercial real estate market that has peaked in some areas have limited traditional asset classes. Farmland and timberland provide both safe diversification and solid returns. 

Non-Correlated Alternative Investments

Institutions such as pension funds and university endowments have long favored agriculture assets for their diversification benefits, but until recently, these products have been challenging for individual investors to access. The Harvest Returns platform allows your clients to access similar private-placement products which reduce volatility and decrease overall portfolio risk.

Farmland is likely to outperform most other assets. It is still my first choice for long-term investing.

Whether your clients are looking for conservative, yield-based farmland deals, or higher multiple return agriculture development opportunities in emerging markets, our platform has a variety of options. Offerings on the platform include both Regulation D 506(c) - accredited investors only, and 506(b) - up to 35 non-accredited sophisticated investors. Minimums start as low as $5000, making them ideal for someone new to the agriculture asset class.

ESG-Conscious Investing

Many agriculture projects on the platform can also be considered "sustainable" investments, an asset class with growing demand among high net worth Millennials. Past offerings have included hydroponic, organic produce operations and grass-fed/grass-finished, humanely-raised livestock production.
