Agricultural Sector Opportunities

The agriculture sector offers investors a wealth of opportunities to capture growth & income driven by rising demand for foods & fuels. FDC-Texas provides direct property & development management, loan servicing, markets, and due diligence consulting on individual project based on asset class analysis, market commentary & opportunities to participate in real-asset agriculture investments.
Demand for agricultural commodities is rising fast due to:

  • Population growth is occurring at the fastest pace in history
  • Super-size populations in developing economies are spending their rising incomes on food & energy, demanding a more resource-intensive, western-style diet
  • Current Agricultural productivity is close to the limit of expansion
  • Climate change & a host of other agricultural land reducing factors

The increasing demand for food, feed & fuel coupled with a diminishing supply of productive assets is causing growth in farmland & commodities, placing agricultural investment strategies high on the agenda of institutional and private investors.
Agricultural land has shown to outperform the majority of traditional investment assets & financial markets, thus protecting portfolios during periods of economic volatility. As the agriculture sector expands due to a continually larger population requiring more commodities, well-managed investors will capitalize on this growth in demand for products and services, generating capital growth & income from properly managed farmland.
