Agribusiness: 21st century geopolitical driver. The critical need to double global food production by the year 2050 has been forcing change in every aspect of agribusiness, and all indications are that change will be accelerating. Technology to improve productivity and transportation, globalization of production and markets, and consumer choices that resonate all the way up the food chain are just a few of the factors influencing the need for more capital and different business models throughout agribusiness.
AgriCapital has been a part of the agribusiness industry for 28 years, employs experts and advisers in virtually every sector of agribusiness, and has been acutely aware of ongoing changes in the broad industry and in particular segments with unique challenges. Our agribusiness market intelligence has granularity unrivaled in the investment banking field. This intelligence has illuminated the industry changes which have been catalysts for virtually all of our assignments and the jumping-off point for our services.
AgriCapital’s market intelligence facilitates its ability to assist clients in finding and implementing customized solutions quickly. When we undertake a new assignment, we begin with a complete study of the client’s business and needs. In contrast with non-specialized investment banking firms, we often have a significant head start based on our prior work in the industry, our knowledge of the competitive climate, and our regular contact with industry players. We then identify and evaluate the available options and work with the client to put in place a customized plan to accomplish the client’s objectives. Selected examples of actual solutions and what it took to achieve them demonstrate both our capabilities and our culture.
