Sensing opportunities, Global Fund Exchange has launched a new agriculture and natural resources hedge fund.

The AquaTerra Fund will invest in global opportunities in agriculture, water and natural resources. The strategy is designed to profit from the world's skyrocketing demand for farm products, potable water and natural resources.

"The best investments are when necessity creates opportunity," GFE's Anric Blatt said. "We are launching the AquaTerra Fund to offer clients a focused, disciplined investment opportunity that capitalizes on these major global trends."

"The sustainability and efficiency needs for our water and food resources are the most critical 'must outcome' for planet Earth," CEO Laurelouise Duffy said. "The AquaTerra Fund is focused on there vital assets."

AquaTerra's strategy is not new for GFE: It's been a part of the firm's flagship Earth Wind & Fire hedge fund.
