Investing with strong secular tailwinds
We focus on partnering with best-in-class, local operators to invest in agriculture and timber assets in investment-friendly jurisdictions around the world. A high component of land, water or biological assets typically underpin our investments and add to downside protection. We also seek to invest in opportunities well poised to benefit from secular trends driving continued demand growth and increasingly constrained supply.
- We invest in timber and agriculture as well as related opportunities
- We focus on direct, long-term investments with a heavy land, water or biological asset component
- We invest alongside like-minded partners and best-in-class operators
What sets us apart?
- Long-term investment horizon
- Sector expertise across the timber and agriculture spectrum
- Availability of capital (target 5% of total PSP portfolio versus 4.5% currently)
- Responsible investing and high ESG standards
