Southwest Harbor, ME (PRWEB) February 10, 2010
Soyatech, LLC, in partnership with HighQuest Partners LLC, will present the Global AgInvesting 2010 conference. This conference, which will take place May 6 -7, 2010 at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City, will provide public and private market investors with keen insights about the opportunities and challenges of investing in agricultural lands, private equity, and infrastructure.
Global AgInvesting 2010 is the only event in North America to bring together leading fund managers, investors and industry experts from the private sector, public sector and academia to address the fundamental issues that will determine where value will be created over the coming decade in terms of crops, geography and infrastructure on a global basis. This conference has been developed to respond to the growing interest in farmland asset management as investors come to appreciate the fundamentals regarding food production and agribusiness, including issues surrounding food security, a growing world population and rising GDP in the developing world.
“Investing at any point in the agricultural value chain requires a firm understanding of the complexity of the global agricultural system and how it is likely to evolve in response to diverse and competing demands for acreage and other limited resources. This event is designed to provide a big-picture perspective of the market and insights into areas of opportunity for investment and growth,” said Chris Erickson, CEO of Soyatech.
The conference will explore:
- Agricultural land as an emerging asset class including the current state of the sector and outlook for the next few years.
- Different global strategies being pursued by leading managers, and how those strategies fit with different investor objectives.
- Opportunities for private agricultural investment outside of the major global row crops, including animal protein production (livestock, poultry, dairy and aquaculture), infrastructure and ag private equity.
- How large-scale farming operations are addressing social and environmental stewardship challenges, particularly in the developing world.
