Again, this year, Bonnefield’s approach to responsible investment has earned it an “A” ranking from the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (UN-PRI). Bonnefield’s approach helps farm families achieve their goals while improving efficiencies and protecting the integrity of farmland, resulting in increased value to the farmland investor.

“Farmers’ interest in Bonnefield’s business model speaks for itself,” says Bonnefield President Tom Eisenhauer. “Since our founding in 2009, we’ve helped more than 100 farm families across Canada and produced consistently attractive returns for investors. With the recent second closing of our Fund IV, we look forward to continuing to support the Canada’s agriculture industry while pursuing superior financial returns.”

The UN-PRI is a network of global investors committed to working together to put principles of responsible investing into practice. Signatories follow a set of six principles that protect the environment, benefit society, and promote sound governance through integrity and transparent reporting. As part of their commitment, signatories agree to an annual assessment of these principles.

Bonnefield became a signatory to UN-PRI in December 2014, the first farmland investment management company in Canada to do so.
