Veripath Farmland Partners operates on the conviction that growing worldwide demand for agricultural products in the form of “food, feed, and fuel” makes farmland an interesting long-term investment. Canadian farmland covers an area exceeding 160 million acres, with an estimated total capitalization of roughly $500 billion.
“We’re excited to add additional offerings onto Fundserv as we grow our capital sources and gain market exposure for the funds.” stated Carmon Blacklock at Veripath Farmland Partners. “Farmland offers interesting inflation and even stagflation hedging features that can complement traditional stock/bond portfolio construction tools.”
Veripath (R) Fund (Veripath Farmland LP) is structured to own farmland in Saskatchewan and Manitoba and Veripath Farmland (UR) Fund (Veripath Farmland (UR) LP) is structured to own farmland across the rest of the country.
By using a split vehicles approach, Veripath simplifies and streamlines management as it navigates the various provincial regulatory regimes. The funds are also configured in an open-ended, evergreen structure, rather than the traditional fixed-term approach. The result is that Veripath allows shorter- and longer-duration holdings to exist side-by-side, thus enabling investors to choose the holding period that best fits their portfolio requirements. The Fundserv codes of Veripath’s two farmland funds are:
Veripath (R) Fund:
- Series W – QWE643
- Series P – QWE642
- Series A – QWE641
Veripath (UR) Fund:
- Series W – QWE640
- Series P – QWE639
- Series A – QWE638
Who is Veripath: Veripath is a Canadian alternative investment firm. Members of Veripath’s management team have decades of farmland, private equity, and private credit investment experience and manage over 70,000 acres of Canadian row crop farmland. Veripath implements its farmland strategy in a way that seeks to preserve as far as possible farmland’s low-volatility return profile – the attribute that generates a material portion of Canadian farmland’s superior risk adjusted return profile. Veripath does this by seeking to minimize operational, weather, geographic and business-related risks – and capture the pure return from land appreciation. Canadian zero-til farmland portfolios may also be a useful addition to ESG driven mandates combining superior risk adjusted returns with environmental benefits.
