Capital Appreciation Is So 2006—Invest Today For The Yield
Sept. 16, 2011, Panama City, Panama: In the current climate, with very localized exceptions, the global property investing opportunity isn’t for capital upside but for yield. One of the best global property investment options from a yield perspective is productive agricultural land, including farmland in Uruguay.
Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,
I've been beating this drum for some time, but I don't think the point can be made too strongly or too often:
It's a yields market. All over.
With very localized exceptions, I don't see any opportunity anywhere today for big capital upside.
That's why, this week at our Emergency Offshore Summit in Panama City, one of our themes has been investing in productive land...land that can throw off a yield...including farmland.
One of the best places in the world today to shop for farmland is Uruguay. As Uruguay attorney Juan Federico Fischer explained in his presentation to the group this week, Uruguay makes sense overall as a solid market choice right now because:
Including, again, farmland.
Uruguay is a country of 3.5 million people...12 million cows...and a lot of very fertile land. Main crops include soybeans, wheat, corn, and sorghum.
Investing in productive agricultural land is a more appealing idea right now than it's been in a very long time...in theory. However, investing in productive agricultural land as a practical matter? That's something else.
Maybe you like the idea of retiring to a small finca of your own down Uruguay way (which could be great)...or maybe you have no interest whatever in becoming a farmer.
Your options then would be to invest in land that you could lease out to someone else to farm for you. Or to engage farm management. Leasing your land to someone who'd like to run cattle or grow soybeans on it could be a straightforward strategy, but it lacks a big upside. Going this route, you'd make a regular but probably modest return.
Engage someone to manage your farmland for you, and you would be positioned to benefit from rising crop values.
How would you organize this in Uruguay? Juan Federico could help, connecting you with the right people in the country both to buy right and then to maximize your yields over time.
