Not deterred by the recent slide in commodities, London-based Sarasin & Partners is launching a new fund investing in a diversified portfolio of agriculture and ag-related sectors.
Rather than focus on gaining simply from the recent significant short-term increases in agricultural commodity prices, the Sarasin Agrisar Fund will take a longer view by investing in land (via real estate investment trusts) and equities and commodities (via exchange-traded funds and exchange-traded commodities).
Henry Boucher, the fund’s portfolio manager, said, “The best way to play the compelling demand/supply characteristics of agriculture is not simply through speculation in commodity prices or buying illiquid land, but rather via building a portfolio of long-run investments that will benefit from a prolonged uptrend.”
