There's obvious reasons why people need to invest in agriculture land and ranches. A few specific reasons listed below are what drove us to make this company and help drive us to ensure its success.
Why Invest with Ranch Investor?
Because your friends don’t own a ranch. You also probably won't be buying a multi-million dollar ranch by yourself any time soon.
Some might not like this, but the truth is John Dutton is fake. You on the other hand can legitimately own a ranch. 'It ain’t dyin’ I’m talkin bout, it’s livin’ - Lonesome Dove
Owning Disney and Six Flags Shares never got you rides in the park
How would you like to hang out and ride with the cowboys and ranchers who manage your investment?! Try hanging out with your uppity, elitist REIT manager.
You can’t hunt Elk with your commercial real estate holdings
There is nothing sexy about commercial real estate, including the risk/adjusted returns.
Have your Coca Cola shares ever gave you a relaxing and rewarding feeling when you opened a can? Well your Ranch Land Investment can while you and your family are drinking a Coke on the deck of your private ranch, looking over your massive spread like a cow-boss.
Environment: Direct ownership in ranches is having a tangible impact on the natural environment of western landscapes. While green investing is the great new fad, how many of your ETFs are actually having any sort of positive environmental impact? Probably next to none. Ranchers are the true stewards of the land, the original conservationists, and your investment in a Ranch Land Fund can help them regeneratively enhance the ecology. You can even take a drive out to the ranch, look around and see for yourself, and hear from the cowboys with actual boots on the ground. Get it straight from the horses mouth. Good luck doing that with some fad-chasing Green/ESG fund that offers you uncompetitive returns to boot!
Social: Have your Phillip Morris shares ever had a direct positive impact on the local community? Your investment in a ranchland fund will keep many rural “flyover” communities thriving, this is truly having a Social impact.
Governance: Do you want to support democratically led organizations that never tilt in favor of the elite wealth or concentrated power? Then support coops. 1-share = 1-vote. This is who we lease to. You can read more about our lessees here regenerative.land
Regenerative agriculture: While many are using this buzzword with a loose definition chasing fads, just as “sustainability” was the most recent sales pitch to naïve consumers, we don’t have to talk the talk. We are a team of practitioners, consultants, and actual experienced ranchers and investors who can define what is regenerative, track, monitor, and report. We’ll let others do all the talking, we prefer to walk the walk.
Holistic: in the context of it all; ESG, Regenerative, Natural Resource Management, Community, we do believe in the “Triple Bottom Line,” People, Profits, Planet. We believe you cannot take away from the community and people to improve profits, just as you cannot seek radical environmental goals that will have negative externalities on people. It is a holistic approach; each decision must not take away from, but add to and improve Community, Ecology, and the Investor’s Financial wellbeing.
Equities are overpriced, Runaway Inflation is Coming, Bonds are worthless, and the US Government is a Ponzi scheme using fiat currency.
Get into tangibles
Alternative Assets and Large American Ranches are no longer for the Hedge Fund Billionaires, Inherited Family Wealth, and America's Wall-Street Elite. If these headlines turn your head in disgust, you're in the right place.
Now is the time to strike back, to return our western legacy to the trailblazing men and women who defined what it meant to be a rancher and a cowboy.
You are the new pioneer. Go west young man!
Sophisticated, Institutional Investors and Portfolio Management
Lets just get this out there and get over it, the annual yield of subject western ranches is at best 2% Gross. Depending on the amount of amenity and quality of life influences, that annual gross yield could even be 0.50%, and with our management plan of improving landscape scale holdings for optimal appreciation of value, we plan on using that annual income to add continual value to these ranches.
Because of this, our funds are for sophisticated investors only and those who seek diversification of their portfolio through alternative assets not available to the average retail investor.
This asset class has historically performed as follows:
Higher risk-reward ratio (Sharpes and Treynor) than the Dow, S&P 500, and Nasdaq composite.
11% annualized real (inflation adjusted) rates of return
0 Beta, no risk-free premium required in a CAPM pricing model
Highly correlated to the CPI; inflationary hedge “gold with a dividend”
Growing consumer demand for proteins
