Farmland Intelligencer | 13 June 2013
Former Hancock Agricultural Investment Group President Jeffrey Conrad is launching AgIS Capital LLC, which will also compete for institutional farmland investment clients.
Mr. Jeffrey Conrad, CFA, who founded Hancock Agricultural Investment Group (HAIG) in 1990 and oversaw its growth to nearly $1.5 billion of directly-managed agricultural investments before leaving in September 2011, has now launched AgIS Capital, LLC in Boston Massachusetts. Mr. Conrad will serve as president of this new agricultural investment managing firm. Ms. Carolyn Bailey, formerly vice president at HAIG will serve as company CFO, and Mr. Kellen West, formerly a HAIG employee and then a fixed income investment analyst at John Hancock, will be a senior investment analyst at AgIS. Mr. Conrad describes AgIS as "an employee owned opportunistic farmland investment firm specializing in global agricultural opportunities."
