Insight Farmland geographies in focus
In order to qualify as an Insight farmland target geography, a country needs to:
- Allow low production costs for key food commodities
- Offer political stability, rule of law, free movement of capital and foreign ownership of farm assets
- Be one of the Insight farmland 'comfort zones'
The Insight farmland strategy aims to build on the existing bridgeheads in which team members have extensive transactional and management experience: Oceania (Australia and New Zealand), Pacific South America (Chile), European Union (Romania). Over time, these bridgeheads will be built out to include Peru and Colombia plus Portugal and Spain, with additional investments targeting the United States and the United Kingdom.

Past performance is not indicative of future results. Investment in any strategy involves a risk of loss which may partly be due to exchange rate fluctuations.
The performance results shown, whether net or gross of investment management fees, reflect the reinvestment of dividends and/or income and other earnings. Any gross of fees performance does not include fees and charges and these can have a material detrimental effect on the performance of an investment.
Any target performance aims are not a guarantee, may not be achieved and a capital loss may occur. Strategies which have a higher performance aim generally take more risk to achieve this and so have a greater potential for the returns to be significantly different than expected.
Portfolio holdings are subject to change, for information only and are not investment recommendations.
Farmland is exposed to the impact of government policy. Subsidies, renewable fuels, trade agreements and attitudes to ownership rights can vary between markets, and may change over time. Farmland is an inherently illiquid asset subject to the range of risks associated with primary production. Land values, like commodities, will experience large deviations from the equilibrium as a result of a range of market forces such as returns across other assets, level of interest rates, and investor sentiment.
Investments in emerging markets can be less liquid and riskier than more developed markets and difficulties in accounting, dealing, settlement and custody may arise.
The investment manager may invest in instruments which can be difficult to sell when markets are stressed.
