Invest in Farmland – Recession-proof and free from the fluctuations of the stock market
July 30, 2010Article by Ray Withers
Farmland investing is ideal for those who are seeking a reliable return and freedom from the vagaries of the stock market, according to EcoInvestments, a division of Property Frontiers.
“The package we are currently putting our weight behind offers contractual earnings. Basically, the minimum investment is £12,000 and the investors choose whether to invest over 5 years for a 66% return, or over 10 years for a 160%. There is no doubt over the success of the crop, because the payout is locked in the initial contract,” explained Director David Cox.
Cox went onto explain that each investor purchases a defined area of land within a large freehold estate at a 33% discounted price — value is determined by a very conservative method of land valuation that is entirely transparent.
“You are essentially agreeing to buy the land and immediately signing a contract to sell it at a higher price. You are offered to choose a re-purchase within either 5 years or 10 years by means of an Annual Payment, followed by a large Final Payment.”
One of the greatest things about the Argentine agricultural investment product is that it can be invested as part of a Self-Invested Personal Pension, or SIPP.
“We all want a secure financial future, and the SIPP is a good way of ensuring that,” Cox concluded.
