  • Who We Are

    Veripath Farmland Partners is an open-ended fund that manages over 90,000 acres in portfolios of row-crop land diversified across Canadian geographies and operators.

    Veripath investment team members began investing in Canadian farmland in 2007 and also bring decades of experience in private equity and alternative asset management.

    Our Philosophy

    We aim to provide superior absolute and risk adjusted returns linked to Canadian farmland price disparities and overall agriculture commodity demand. Canadian farmland has demonstrated compelling financial characteristics which drew members of the Veripath team to the asset class as early as 2007 – low volatility, consistent nominal rates of returns, and low correlation to many traditional investments.

    Unique Open-ended Approach

    Most farmland investment vehicles operate as closed ended funds. Veripath is one of a small number of pioneers using an open-ended approach to make its farmland investments. An open-ended fund gives investors control over how long they want to deploy capital and after the contracted hold period they can simply redeem at the prevailing NAV at a time of their choosing.

Veripath’s farmland funds are open-ended vehicles created for the purpose of investing in a portfolio of Canadian Farmland.  Veripath currently operates two funds that divide Canada into two target markets – Veripath Farmland LP (Saskatchewan and Manitoba only) and Veripath Farmland (UR) LP (Canada excluding SK and MB).  By dividing the investment universe into these separate funds, compliance with the various provincial regulatory regimes is streamlined and simplified.  Veripath manages over 90,000 acres across its portfolios.

Our Philosophy

Veripath is structured to allow investors to cost effectively allocate a portion of their portfolios to farmland without the need to take on the complex responsibilities of ownership of farmland. We aim to provide superior absolute and risk adjusted returns linked to Canadian farmland price disparities and overall agriculture commodity demand. Canadian farmland has demonstrated all the compelling financial characteristics which drew members of the Veripath team to the asset class as early as 2007 – low volatility, consistent nominal rates of returns, and low correlation to many traditional investments.
