The Firm's investment approach focuses on exploiting inefficiencies and dislocations within the agricultural sector to position our clients to succeed. The Firm's unique perspective and experience allows us to create value where others fail to see or embrace opportunity.
AgIS uses fundamental analysis, which entails a general assessment based upon various factors including sale price, asset value, market structure, and history. AgIS will analyze the financial condition and capabilities of its investments, as well as the investment's markets and position amongst its competitors in order to determine the recommendations made to clients in accordance with their mandates. The primary risk in using fundamental analysis is that while the overall health and position of an investment may be good, market conditions may negatively impact the investment.
AgIS takes a highly disciplined approach to investing, and in that approach includes assessing investment opportunities and operating or overseeing investments with strong considerations for our Environmental, Societal, and Governance related policies, of which we have specific policies for:
Water Access, Use and Protection
Air Quality Improvement and Protection
Soil Quality Improvement and Protection
