History of Institutional Farmland Investing

Congratulations to Murray Wise who was recently recognized and cited in a white paper titled “History of Institutional Farmland Investing” which traces the history of farmland investing from its origins as a “niche investment dominated by a few large pension plans and insurance companies” to its current status as “a mainstream institutional real asset class that increasingly can be accessed by retail-oriented investors”.

The white paper, written by Chartered Financial Analyst Julie Koeninger and published by HighQuest Partners, examined institutional farmland investment from the 1970s to present day. Murray was one of the pioneers in this asset class and Murray Wise Associates LLC continues to be an active participant as witnessed by our latest venture acquiring permanent crop properties in the the U.S.
