Global AgInvesting (SM) Asia promises comprehensive look at investing in the global agricultural production and trade industry. (12.1.2011)

 SINGAPORE, SINGAPORE, December 5, 2011 – Capitalizing on growing investment opportunities in the $2.52 trillion global agricultural production and trade industry, Global AgInvestingSM Asia will bring together leading investors, fund managers and industry experts to engage in in-depth discussions on the opportunities and challenges of investing in agriculture, here at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel from Dec. 5-7.

 
Representatives from leading global institutional investors, academics, policymakers, NGOs and industry experts will join host HighQuest Partners, a top strategy advisory firm to companies in the global food, agribusiness and biofuels sector, and a leading provider of financial advice for understanding the drivers of global agriculture.
 
“Developing an agricultural investment program presents a complex and challenging undertaking, as well as a deep and nuanced understanding of the industry,” said Philippe de Lapérouse, Chairman of Global AgInvesting. “Global AgInvestingSM Asia aims to provide the tools to help the end investor navigate through the myriad of choices, including where and how to invest, and how to evaluate and select the best managers in this increasingly important institutional investment asset class that is expected to more than double in the next three to five years.”
 
Conference attendees can develop a deeper understanding of the compelling fundamentals driving the ag sector by attending a course in ag fundamentals, taught by leading analysts, academics and economists on December 5. The two-day conference will include panel discussions on responsible investment, illiquid vs. liquid ag investment styles, palm oil production investments and worldwide farmland conditions that will provide a broad base of understanding of the ag sector.

Other topics addressed at Global AgInvestingSM Asia, a complement to the flagship Global AgInvestingSM conference held in New York in early spring, will examine the ability of real ag assets to provide a hedge against inflation, and returns that are uncorrelated with the public markets.   

Global AgInvesting is the premier conference series worldwide for investors and managers investing in farmland and other illiquid agriculture strategies, and includes three yearly conferences in the U.S, Asia and Europe.
