Business model

Investors participate in annual cycles of row crop production

The Fund operates in annual cycles from 1 July to June 30 (the Fund’s fiscal year). The Fund is now in its second fiscal year, targeting a 10-25% return for investors with US$ 4 million AuM. During its first fiscal year, the Fund achieved a 10.82% investing in the production of soft commodities and in commodity trade finance in Uruguay, Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay (since inception, on 1 August 2009).

The Fund does not own land, and therefore is not exposed to real estate cycles and is able to provide investors with annual liquidity. 

Investors enjoy sound returns with an attractive risk/reward profile. Commodity price volatility is mitigated through hedging and forward selling. Weather risk is mitigated through regional and crop diversification, and through specialty insurance products.
