OECD Food, Agriculture and Fisheries Working Papers No. 33

by High Quest Partners, United States

In an effort to shed some light on these operations, a private consulting firm (HighQuest Partners) with a proprietary database of funds active in the crop land and agriculture infrastructure was contracted to undertake a confidential survey of private financial sector investment in agriculture. As of the date of this report, 54 private sector investment groups are raising and deploying capital to acquire farmland and finance agricultural infrastructure projects on a global basis. Based on the interviews conducted with key executives of over 50% of these groups, the amount of private capital committed to this emerging asset class on a global basis is estimated to be approximately USD 14 billion.
