Are Investors Ripe for Agriculture? – A look into Nordic Investor’s Virtual Roundtable

Nordic Investor’s agriculture roundtable gathered portfolio managers and investment consultants from North America, Denmark, Sweden and the UK to explore the unique features of agricultural investing and how it is adapting to investors’ evolving ESG and sustainability priorities. Matthew Corbett, Partner, Agriculture at Fiera Comox, discussed the asset class in a portfolio context, the equity partnership business model the team implemented, as well as their approach to ESG and country, climate and catastrophe risks.

“We have implemented an equity partnership model over several decades, and we find it is critical both for good returns and aligning sustainability outcomes over very long time periods. We like to see farmers and food producers having equity stakes alongside investors. Our farming partners are local to industries and communities, and have decades long horizons stretching out to the next generation,” observes Matthew Corbett.
