FPJ1302C - Henry, M (2016), The Effects of Financialisation on Farmland Demand

FPJ1302C - Henry, M (2016), The Effects of Financialisation on Farmland Demand, in Farm Policy Journal, vol. 13, no. 2, Winter 2016, pp. 13-22, Surry Hills, Australia.

The popularity of farmland is on the rise with new investors that have little or no prior connection to agriculture. Investing in farmland is viewed as a way of capitalising on the concern over food supply in the face of population growth, dietary change of the Asian middle class and apparent land scarcity. Its reputation as a long-term defensive asset which holds its value in periods of low returns adds to its appeal. A growing farm investment management organisation (FIMO) industry has emerged to acquire and manage farmland on behalf of external investors. There are already signs that the influx of new money into agriculture is adding additional volatility and demand in Australian farmland markets. This paper discusses the motives and behaviour of new participants in the farmland market and the potential consequences for land values.
