Direct Farmland Investment - Without Becoming a Farmer!
GreenWorld BVI Brings Alternative Investment in Farmland to the Retail Market
Boutique investment firm GreenWorld (BVI) announced that it now is able to offer individuals a unique African farmland investment opportunity. GreenWorld's farmland investment offering is the first one in African farmland accessible by individuals, with a minimum investment requirement of only £1,950/hectare for high quality farmland that has already begun producing.
Food prices have exploded in the last few years, and the United Nations recently estimated that global food production will need to grow 70% by 2050. With population expected to surge from 6 billion people today to 9.1 billion in 2050, and the amount of arable farmland in the world actually on a downward trend, many commentators believe farmland investment is the trade of the century.
Not surprisingly, there has been a huge surge of farmland investment by large institutions such as Sovereign Wealth funds, especially in African farmland.
60% of the world's remaining untilled arable farmland is in Africa, stated Peter Thompson, Partner at GreenWorld, and this is where we feel the greatest gains from farmland investment will come in the future."
Thompson further noted that GreenWorld was inspired to start its' farmland project by noted commodities investor Jim Rogers. "Jim Rogers farmland - that was definitely one of our inspirations", concluded Thompson.
