The Agricultural Management Company is experiencing increased overseas interest in agricultural investment, particularly from the Middle East and Asia, and as such has appointed the ex-trade commissioner of Egypt to act as their representative throughout the Middle East.
The Agricultural Management Company representative desk will be located in Cairo, Egypt to increase the company’s exposure to Middle Eastern agricultural investment markets and enhance investor client relations. This move is in response to increased capital flows from the Middle East into agriculture.
Charlie Blomfield, Managing Director of the Agricultural Management Company, recently presented at the World Grains Trade Summit in Singapore and will be presenting at the 'Large Scale Farming in Africa' conference in Cairo, Egypt in April this year on global agricultural investment.
The Middle East and Asia are more recent focus points for the Agricultural Management Company, seeking appetite for agricultural investment outside of the more traditional European and United States investor markets.
Domestically, interest in agricultural investment is conservative, although is steadily developing as the market matures.
The Agricultural Management Company is maintaining focus on overseas investors, and the Brisbane and Sydney offices remain the base of operational management.
