Farmland Investments Are An Ideal Hedge Against Inflationgreenworldadmin | Tuesday, August 7th, 2012 | 1 Comment »
Whilst farmland investment has not been considered by many individuals, there are some excellent reasons for savvy investors to consider farmland as an investment. When discussing farmland investments, GreenWorld are not talking about agricultural funds, but rather about direct investment in farmland.
One reason in particular to consider farmland as an investment is that as a “hard asset”, farmland investments are also an excellent inflation hedge. With western central banks having already engaged in extensive Quantatative Easing (QE), and likely to engage in further QE as well, investors would be well-advised to consider adding an inflation hedge of some kind. Just to take one example, a farmland investment in Europe in Central or Eastern Europe Europe in one of the new EU countries where the price of farmland is cheaper than in the UK or France is a good option to consider. As an alternative, GreenWorld’s Farmland investment in Africa is also an excellent way to obtain both good current income as well as as to hedge against the inevitable inflationary impact of QE.
