Merits for Investing in Canadian Agri-food and Agri-Business

Global Outlook for Agriculture

  • With projected global population growth there is an increase in demand for food
  • The increase in standard of living in emerging economies is leading to a shift in demand for higher protein foods

Canada’s Advantage

  • Fifth largest agricultural exporter in the world and that position is expected to strengthen due to global economic trends
  • Per capita supply of arable land exceeds the world average
  • Proven technological advancements make us well positioned to help meet the growing demand for food
  • Recognized reputation and commitment for providing safe food
  • Expected beneficiary from climate change
  • Ample supply of fresh water
  • Recent trade agreements are expected to open new markets for Canadian agriculture exporters

Transitioning Business Ownership

  • The aging population of agri-food and operating company owners with uncertain succession plans is placing further pressure on supply

Merits of Investing in Market Maker Ag

Alternative investment

  • An alternative investment to stocks and bonds
  • Farmland funds have been proven as a viable alternative investment

Long-term “buy and hold” strategy

  • As a Canadian-controlled private company, we are not subject to restrictive investment hold periods
  • Owning companies for the long-term provides more latitude and flexibility to build successful companies that should result in higher multiples on invested capital.
