Global agricultural production and trade, which is a $2.52 trillion industry accounting for approximately 3.5% of the world’s economic activity, represents an emerging asset class for private and institutional investors. After suffering from decades of underinvestment, the sector is attracting the interest of institutional and private capital due to the combination of several factors: exceptionally strong fundamentals, the opportunity that real ag assets provide to hedge investments against inflation, and that returns on agricultural assets have low correlation with other asset classes.
