GAIA launches Farming 20 Index and Tracker Certificate

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

J. Coast Sullenger
Opalesque Industry Update: GAIA, in partnership with EFG International Finance, is launching the first investment vehicle of its kind focusing uniquely on listed farming companies around the globe. Investment into the worlds food producers is not only opportunistic given low current valuations of the shares--it also helps empower farming and plays a vital role in helping to “Feed the World."

Highlights:

  • The first certificate to offer investors a “plain vanilla”, single line, into the global farming sector
  • Liquid certificate with daily liquidity
  • Exposure to a wide range of crops
  • Exposure to millions of hectares of prime agri land (freehold or leasehold) held by the underlying companies
  • Farming companies are currently depressed and trade at an average 30% discount to the value of their net tangible assets (land, inventories)

Farming companies as a whole demonstrate solid fundamentals and strong growth that is driven both organically and by the dynamic macro and demographic trends related to agriculture.

Please see attached in this mail some materials related to the Farming Certificate:

  • GAIA FARMING 20 Tracker Certificate Fact Sheet
  • Indicative Term Sheet
  • PDF presentation on the GAIA Farming 20 index

Book building is now open and is set to close on 12.12.2012. The respective issue date is 17.12.2012.

J. Coast Sullenger, founder of GAIA Capital Advisors, details GAIA's approach in detail in an interview for Opalesque TV. Sullenger launched the GAIA Resources Fund in May 2004 and the GAIA World Agri Fund in May 2008.
