Amidst heightened market uncertainty, investors today are in search of alternative safe-haven investments. While alternative investments cover a broad range of financial strategies, assets, and instruments, one has historically stood out: farmland.
Farmland has proven to be a unique investment that has historically held its value through turbulent markets, performed well during times of high inflation, and delivered strong, uncorrelated returns.
Yet, while farmland has been an attractive asset class from a risk-adjusted perspective, it is one of the least understood due to various historical constraints in the market. As modern financial platforms evolve, farmland investing, which was historically the sole domain of large institutions, is becoming increasingly accessible to long-term investors of all shapes and sizes.
In this paper, we seek to provide a general understanding of farmland as an asset class and highlight the various financial characteristics that have made it a historically compelling addition to investors’ portfolios.
