The Financial Benefits to Investors in a Canadian Farmland Mutual Fund

An analysis of Canadian farmland risk and return on investment shows that a Farmland Mutual Fund (FMF) would have been a reasonably good investment over the past 15 years. Investors at the very low or very high end of risk spectrum would not include FMF in their portfolios, Financial gains from a FMF result from low level risk with an expected yield that is greater than bonds and low correlation with other financial asset returns. Non-farm families gained from improvements to their pension and non-pension investment portfolios. Farm families gained from having more external non-farm equity entering the agricultural industry.
