Brazil Farmland: Emerging Market, Growing Opportunity

WITH JOSE MINAYA, MANAGING DIRECTOR, NATURAL RESOURCES AND INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENTS

Land is a key resource in the agricultural production chain, and while world food, stock feed and bio-fuel demand is increasing, the global supply of arable land is shrinking.*

This imbalance underscores the investment logic of TIAA-CREF’s strategic acquisition, and responsible management, of prime agricultural land around the globe.

Through an extended network of dedicated agriculture and investment professionals, and working with established local partners, TIAA-CREF currently has a portfolio of farmland valued at approximately $2 billion*, comprising properties across the United States, Australia, Europe, and South America.
