Core Challenges

The real opportunity to be grasped is recognition that when an additional investment of skills and knowledge
is applied to an existing enterprise it can achieve rapid scalability and growth,
whilst ensuring such growth has sufficient funds.

The Investment Challenge

For those seeking to invest in the agribusiness sector or those seeking investment and funding, the prime issue is one of strategy.
Even the most successful agribusinesses find it difficult to shore up capital positions and ensure access to funds for future business developments.

  • Capital Growth and Succession
  • Management Skills and Succession
  • Productivity Growth and Investment

The Human Challenge

Organisations operating within the sector, now more than ever, need to stay abreast of market trends and understand how the workforce is changing and evolving and what drives participation.

Whether a family business, a syndicated or joint venture business or corporatised business ... sourcing, retaining and cultivating human capital remains a key focus for our industry

  • What drives motivated participation?
  • What role does formal and industry training play in business growth?
  • What are the potential pathways to future personal and business growth?

The Business Challenge

Many successful agribusinesses in the "Farm to Fork" space, and areas that feed into, or that have parallel pathways, have intellectual assets, both formal and informal, that are not achieving their full potential.

  • How to fund the growth and implementation strategies?
  • How to have the most advantageous business structure for the future growth strategies?
  • Finding partners for marketing and growth to local and international markets.

The Opportunity

Demand from agribusinesses seeking to grow and expand requires flexible thinking and strategies. As a result, the way in which we work with you - indeed your requirements, goals and aspirations - vary considerably with that of other clients.  Our approach therefore alters from project to project. To put it simply, the service and support you receive is unique to your project. As a result we work with a very small and select group of projects, all of which have evolved 100% through word of mouth and personal referral.  

Flexible structures and equity positions enable a mix of skills and capital to be engaged that supports growth and expansion. Diversified equity positions spread the risk of investing in the sector, can release equity for succession planning, and unlock the benefits of investing in the sector without all participants having to legally own every component of the agribusiness.

On the investment side, there is increasing demand from local and international investors including large family businesses, high net worth investors and trusts to invest on a standalone or aggregated basis in selected opportunities. Adding value via technology, market access and human capital is a key driver for this investment.
