Impact of climate change & geopolitical trends on agriculture investment opportunities at Global AgInvesting in New York (3.12.2015)

NEW YORK (March 12, 2015) – What impact will weather have on agricultural investments this year? How will geopolitical trends affect the appetite of institutional investors for exposure in the global agricultural sector? Which sectors of the supply chain are attracting interest from private equity capital? Will cannabis grow to be one of the most investible crops? These questions and more will be revealed at the 7th annual Global AgInvesting (GAI) flagship event, which will be held at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City, April 27-30.

As the world’s largest agriculture investment conference with an attendance in excess of 700, this event provides investors, asset managers, farm and fund managers, and agribusiness executives with three-and-a-half days of critical content and unrivaled networking.

Evelyn Browning-Garriss, historical climatologist and author of “The Browning Newsletter,” will deliver a captivating presentation that delves deep into the short- and long-term natural climatic trends that are likely to shape weather patterns, crops and agricultural investments around the globe.
