HighQuest Partners Co-Hosts Global AgInvesting 2009 Conference (4.6.2009)

HighQuest Partners Co-Hosts Global AgInvesting 2009 Conference

Soyatech, LLC -- SOUTHWEST HARBOR, ME -- April 6, 2009 -- HighQuest Partners LLC and the Investment Management Institute (IMI) will present Global AgInvesting 2009. This cutting-edge conference, which will be produced by Soyatech, takes place June 22-23 at the Marriott Eastside Hotel in New York City. It will provide insights about investments in agricultural lands, commodities, and infrastructure to both public and private market investors.
Global AgInvesting 2009 is the premier conference to bring together leading economists, investors and industry experts from the private sector, public sector and academia to address the fundamental issues that will determine where value will be created over the coming decade in terms of crops, geography and infrastructure. Growing world population, rising incomes in the developing world, and the increasing use of biomass for biofuels and industrial applications will drive unprecedented growth in demand for agricultural crops over the next decade.

“Investing anywhere in the worldwide agricultural sector requires a firm understanding of how the complex global agricultural system will evolve in response to diverse and competing demands for acreage and other limited resources. This event is designed to provide a big-picture perspective of the market and provide insights into areas of opportunity and growth,” said Chris Erickson, CEO of Soyatech.

The conference will explore:

•    Agriculture sector fundamentals: meeting global demand for agricultural commodities in 2020
•    How competing demands for food, fuel and industrial applications will drive the market for vegetable oils
•    How increased agricultural production will require corresponding increases in key infrastructure investment
•    Sustainability and the expansion of agriculture
•    Global opportunities in farm land investment
