Actionable ag investing knowledge from expert investors at GAI Asia (9.2.2016)

TOKYO, 2 September 2016 – When HighQuest Group hosts its Global AgInvesting (GAI) Asia seminar here this month, it brings with it an unmatched selection of investment intelligence through its distinguished speaking faculty. Some of the world’s top financial talent will converge to inform the institutional investing community of the possibilities of portfolio diversification with agricultural real assets, which feature capital appreciation and stable, long horizon returns. 

At Global AgInvesting Asia, which will take place 13-15 September at the Hilton Tokyo Odaiba, decision makers from Itochu Pension Fund, Sumitomo, Mitsui & Co., Mitsubishi Asset Management, Japan Post Bank, Nihon UNISYS, Sony Life Insurance company, and many more, will join international power players including ANZ Bank, Farmland Partners (NYSE:FPI), Hancock Agricultural Investment Group, and the Second Swedish National Pension Fund.

“With Japan’s negative interest rate environment, many investors are shifting to alternative investment programs,” said Jared Rose, managing director of Global AgInvesting for HighQuest Group. “This pivot towards real assets reveals unprecedented opportunity for engagement with the global agriculture investment sector, and Global AgInvesting is honored to play an integral role in the commencement of this educational period about this real asset investment space.”

Discussions of agriculture’s many subsectors – farmland, agricultural technology, animal protein, and more – will be addressed. Through comprehensive, explanatory sessions attendees will gain a clear view of the asset class, ensuring educated participation in the sector.
