To solve this seemingly intractable equation, IAF has worked hard to provide a very favorable risk adjusted investment vehicle in the secular growth sector of agricultural commodities. There are specific reasons why IAF strategy can only work in this sector (and not in energy despite its bullish setup for instance).
1. We achieve our risk adjusted performance by combining USDA sponsored programs and a rigorous Private Equity operation as a unique way to secure investment principal.
2. We control all farm operations from land acquisition, to the whole process of farming and farmers selection, and training.
3. We use the most advanced risk management and profit enhancement techniques to benefit from the intrinsic market volatility. In effect, we create a floor that secures a minimum level of sales for our production but still allows us to benefit from seasonal, weather and supply driven temporary price spikes.
4. We handle all
marketing operations from direct sales to major Asian and Middle Eastern companies, to deliveries to local and national elevators/brokers.
