The farmland fund advised by Insight was launched with the objective of providing institutional investors with a diversified portfolio of unique investment opportunities in selected target markets. The fund has invested in Romania, Poland, Chile, Australia and New Zealand.
Insight is a signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment in farmland. It is also committed to integrated farm management, a bridge between industrial and organic farming which provides a framework for balancing the competing demands of farming. This approach is championed in the UK by LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming).
The value of investments and any income from them will fluctuate and is not guaranteed (this may be partly due to exchange rate fluctuations). Investors may not get back the full amount invested. Past performance is not a guide to future performance.
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.
