At this international event, hundreds of allocators, fund managers and industry executives will converge to build their networks and gain a greater understanding of agriculture as an asset class. Topics to be discussed include regional risk and return profiles for global farmland, agribusiness private equity, animal protein plays, water, new technologies, and responsible investing.
“Scarcity-driven alternative investments are gaining more attention due to the strong fundamentals associated with the global economy, climate change, and continued population growth in key developing countries,” said Philippe de Lapérouse, managing director of conference host company HighQuest Partners, a globally recognized strategy consulting firm serving agriculture, agribusiness, agricultural investment, and food sectors. “The second edition of Global AgInvesting Asia will examine agriculture and related sectors through a series of panel discussions and presentations tailored to the Asian investment community, with the addition of new content and formats.”
Some of this new content includes an agriculture fund manager showcase, intimate roundtable discussions, and a keynote address from investment expert, Jim Rogers. Rogers, a bestselling author, Singapore local, and long-time advocate of agricultural investing, will discuss the importance of the Asian region in the current economy, as well as what he considers to be promising agriculture investment strategies. He also will take questions from conference attendees in what promises to be a lively Q&A session.
