A former investment banker and tech investor, Tom Eisenhauer was cycling in Ontario’s farmland country when he wondered about the merits of farmland investing. After several months of research, he had his answer.
“I had no idea that farmland was such a huge institutional investment class around the world, but not in Canada. Over decades, it’s had very steady-Eddie equity-like returns, extremely low volatility, and no correlation to public markets – at a time when markets were going crazy. I thought this is too good not to pursue.”
