Canadian Farmland Values Reach Record Levels in 2013 Inline with Agcapita Investment Premise

RE/MAX just released report found that Canadian farmland reached record levels.

Sep 13 2013, 7:24am CDT | by PR.com

Calgary, Canada, September 13, 2013 --(PR.com)-- The RE/MAX Market Trends Report: Farm Edition 2013, highlighting trends and developments in 17 rural communities throughout Canada, found that limited inventory levels—reported in virtually all agricultural centres—continued to contribute to strong upward pressure on the price per acre in 88 per cent (15/17) of markets examined.

"Whether it's owning, renting, investing, or securing farmland for residential purposes, it's clear the market for Canadian farmland remains strong from many angles," says Gurinder Sandhu, Executive Vice President and Regional Director, RE/MAX Ontario-Atlantic Canada. "Regardless of purpose, motivation remains the single greatest common thread. The desire to bury money in the ground is clearly evident. The long-term confidence in the performance of Canadian farmland—from both an investment and agricultural perspective remains strong."

The findings of the report match Agcapita’s strong believe that fundamentals are in favor of Farmland investment. Agcapita believes farmland is a safe investment, that supply is shrinking and that unprecedented demand for "food, feed and fuel" will continue to move crop prices higher over the long-term Further.

Agcapita’s series of farmland funds continue to show great appeal to conservative investors concerned with inflation and the volatility of their existing public equity investments. Farmland has similar inflation hedging qualities to gold but with an ongoing cash yield that gold lacks. Farmland returns exhibit low volatility and this combined with the high absolute returns from farmland equate to a favorable Sharpe ratio. Agcapita’s funds directly hold diversified portfolios of farmland in western Canada, and in particular in the highly price competitive province of Saskatchewan. Investors are provided with the comfort of a direct investment in farmland combined with a model of front-end loaded cash rents. Agcapita Farmland Fund IV has launched in April 2013 with a $20 million offering. Agcapita is the only farmland investment fund eligible for registered plans (RRSP, TFSA, RESP etc). Fund IV is open to investors in BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Newfoundland and accredited investors in Quebec. If you are interested in finding out more about the Fund IV offering please feel free to email us on enquiries@farmlandinvestmentpartnership.com
