The Forestry and Agriculture Investment Summit will cover all aspects of these asset classes and their role in: 

  • shaping climate change
  • greening up portfolios
  • geographical differences and expected carbon and financial returns
  • corporate moves into forestry as a way to reduce their carbon footprints
  • impact investing and what KPIs to use
  • block chain models for investors
  • latest trends in regenerative agriculture
  • agroforestry
  • latest disruptive technologies
  • ownership models and investment structures
  • blended finance
  • managing risks and long term returns
  • new methods and practices that are set to revolutionise these segments

The global pandemic has not removed the need for investors to invest in these asset classes. If anything the pandemic has provided a boost for the sector. Investors are seeing real assets as a hedge against turbulent stock markets, the drive towards carbon zero is putting an even greater need for further investments into carbon accretive assets, forest products are being demanded more in construction, housing and consumer markets like packaging and bioplastics and at the same time as this is pushing up prices on the assets, the rise in demand is pushing up returns. The final agenda, with a wealth of experts from across the sector, will reflect these trends and look to the future, to help investors understand what is around the corner, and how they should react to the future challenges.
