Two Things Agriculture Investors Can’t Miss

The researchers at IIR have spent the summer working closely with investors to gauge and measure the best investment strategies in untested sectors. Agriculture is one of the most fascinating alternative asset classes there – and because ag is so multi-faceted, deploying the right strategy is critical.

We have two exciting opportunities for agriculture investors.

New AgReturn Webinar: Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC): Adding Value & Transforming the Market

Sharpen your aquaculture strategy. Aquaculture is a blossoming industry that is ripe for investment, thanks to the global appetite for responsibly farmed seafood and new certification programs and standards managed by the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC). We’ll be hosting an exclusive Webinar on Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2012 at 10:00 AM EST with Chris Ninnes, CEO of ASC. He’ll be walking participants through the ASC standards and how they create value for agriculture investors. Register to participate in this complimentary live Webinar here.

The AgReturn Innovators Award

Thrust agriculture innovation into the spotlight. We’re honoring agricultural entrepreneurs with the AgReturn Innovators Award on November13, 2012, during a ceremony at the Renaissance Chicago Downtown. The winner will be chosen by a panel of prestigious investor and industry judges, including Edward Shonsey, CEO of L1 Agrosciences Inc. and Paul Zorner, Operating Partner at Pegasus Capital Advisors L.P. 

The award honors an individual or company that is focused on making an impact in the agriculture food chain, with the winner receiving a speaking slot at AgReturn San Francisco, slated for May 2013.  Click here to see the awards criteria and nominate a company.

To get a truly in-depth look at the best agriculture investing strategies, you’ve got to be at AgReturn Global Investments this November in Chicago. The price for attending goes up on Sept. 21, 2012 – so save your seat for the lowest rate today

Peter, thanks so much for your comment. I'm the producer handling the AgReturn Global Investment conference, and we agree that ag as an asset class deserves a lot of attention. If you know of a particularly innovative entrepreneur in the UK, I encourage you to nominate them for the AgReturn Innovators award! It's easy -- click here for more info:
