Published on

Agcapita is pleased to announce that Agcapita Fund IV has conducted its final closing ending a highly successful 2014 capital raising program. Agcapita Fund V is pending and is expected to launch in early Q3 2014. If you would like to receive information about Agcapita Fund V when it launches please feel free to contact us at Fund5@agcapita.com or register online at the Agcapita website. Stephen Johnston, founder of Agcapita, a Canadian farmland investment fund, commented "Agcapita believes that prices of Canada farmland, in particular Saskatchewan farmland, are deeply discounted to world averages for a tonne of productive capacity. Part of our investment premise is that this gap will close and with the attention that Canadian farmland is receiving from investors it can obviously happen quite quickly. It is this "margin of safety" return driver that attracted us to Canada and Saskatchewan in the first place.”

  1. 1. Agcapita Update: Agcapita Farmland Fund IV Conducts Successful Final Close FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, ATTENTION INVESTMENT EDITORS – April 29th, 2014 - Calgary Agcapita is pleased to announce that Agcapita Fund IV has conducted its final closing ending a highly successful 2014 capital raising program. Agcapita Fund V is pending and is expected to launch in early Q3 2014. If you would like to receive information about Agcapita Fund V when it launches please feel free to contact us at Fund5@agcapita.com or register online at the Agcapita website. Stephen Johnston, founder of Agcapita, a Canadian farmland investment fund, commented "Agcapita believes that prices of Canada farmland, in particular Saskatchewan farmland, are deeply discounted to world averages for a tonne of productive capacity. Part of our investment premise is that this gap will close and with the attention that Canadian farmland is receiving from investors it can obviously happen quite quickly. It is this "margin of safety" return driver that attracted us to Canada and Saskatchewan in the first place.” Agcapita believes that farmland funds continue to show great appeal to conservative investors concerned with inflation and the volatility of their existing public equity investments. Canadian farmland has similar inflation hedging qualities to gold but with an ongoing cash yield that gold lacks. Canadian farmland returns have exhibited low volatility and this combined with higher absolute returns equate to a favorable Sharpe ratio. Agcapita’s funds directly hold diversified portfolios of farmland in western Canada, and in particular in the highly price competitive province of Saskatchewan. Agcapita’sfund’s give investors the benefit of a direct investment in farmland combined with a model of front-end loaded cash rents. Agcapita believes farmland is a safe investment, that supply is shrinking and that unprecedented demand for "food, feed and fuel" will continue to move crop prices higher over the long-term. Agcapita is one of Canada's most experienced farmland fund managers, launching its first fund in Q1 2008.
