3 Key Points:

  1. Investing in agricultural assets is similar to real estate investing. This asset class is also a great way to diversify your portfolio and generate income.
  2. Always look at the sponsor’s / investor’s background and do the due diligence to see if they have the qualities that you want for the business.
  3. Build a business model that will benefit to the success of both the sponsor and the investor as investing is a 2-way relationship.
