Jeremy Grantham Adocates Forestry and Farmland Investmentsgreenworldadmin | Wednesday, October 17th, 2012 | 1 Comment »
GreenWorld has long believed that alternative investments such as forestry and farmland should be a substantial part of any investors’ portfolio. Now, we see Jeremy Grantham (one of our favorite investors along with Jim Rogers) talking about the ongoing global food crisis and advocating forestry and farmland investments. In a recent quarterly letter on his GMO website, Grantham stated the following:
“We are about five years into a chronic global food crisis that is unlikely to fade for many decades…Food production will need to increase 60 to 100 percent by 2050 in order to adequately feed the more than 9 billion people who will populate the Earth. Farming and forestry are at the top of the list for alternative investments. Serious long-term investors should have a very substantial overweighting in a resource package.”
This pretty much confirms what we at GreenWorld have been advocating all along. GreenWorld was founded to make alternative asset classes such as forestry investments and farmland investments available to retail investors, and hearing a legendary investor like Jeremy Grantham say the same thing leads us to believe we are on the right track.
