Global AgInvesting Asia, with keynote speaker Jim Rogers, brings the largest gathering of ag investors to Singapore (7.10.2012)

BOSTON, Mass., July 10, 2012 -- Global AgInvestingSM, the world's premier agriculture investment conference series, is returning to the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, September 25-27. Building on the remarkable success of its inaugural event last December at this venue, Global AgInvesting Asia (www.globalaginvesting.com) will provide access to a targeted gathering of key forward-thinking end investors, sector education, exposure to deal flow, overviews of diversified strategies, discussion of industry trends, and opportunities to develop new partnerships.

At this international event, hundreds of allocators, fund managers and industry executives will converge to build their networks and gain a greater understanding of agriculture as an asset class. Topics to be discussed include regional risk and return profiles for global farmland, agribusiness private equity, animal protein plays, water, new technologies, and responsible investing.

“Scarcity-driven alternative investments are gaining more attention due to the strong fundamentals associated with the global economy, climate change, and continued population growth in key developing countries,” said Philippe de Lapérouse, managing director of conference host company HighQuest Partners, a globally recognized strategy consulting firm serving agriculture, agribusiness, agricultural investment, and food sectors. “The second edition of Global AgInvesting Asia will examine agriculture and related sectors through a series of panel discussions and presentations tailored to the Asian investment community, with the addition of new content and formats.”

Some of this new content includes an agriculture fund manager showcase, intimate roundtable discussions, and a keynote address from investment expert, Jim Rogers. Rogers, a bestselling author, Singapore local, and long-time advocate of agricultural investing, will discuss the importance of the Asian region in the current economy, as well as what he considers to be promising agriculture investment strategies. He also will take questions from conference attendees in what promises to be a lively Q&A session.

The full conference agenda and registration information are available exclusively at www.globalaginvesting.com.

Since its inception in 2009, HighQuest Partners’ Global AgInvesting has attracted over 2,200 attendees worldwide and now organizes four international conferences annually. Its new robust Research & Insight platform at www.globalaginvesting.com offers up-to-the-minute news, market intelligence and current investment themes, focused research papers, interviews and editorials, and the first comprehensive directory of investors, managers, operators, and service providers involved in global agriculture investing.
