About

The Fund

The AgFood Opportunities Fund is an Investment Fund based in Australia. Our aim is to create wealth for our clients by identifying under-valued investment opportunities both locally and globally through listed and unlisted companies in the Food and Agriculture sectors. We were formed in 2020 - emerging from PAC Partners Pty Ltd - a Melbourne based stockbroker specialising in small and mid cap companies. We are flexible, nimble and attuned to the industry and markets. Our people have a wide range of experience and bring a plethora of perspectives to the table. This enables us to identify mispriced opportunities and take action in a timely manner to maximise return.

Vision

Our vision is to create wealth for our clients by using our deep knowledge of the Australian, New Zealand and global Agriculture and Food sectors. We will differentiate by investing where the best opportunities are; Listed or unlisted, local or global. 

Objective

Our investment objective is to provide shareholders with 8-10% p.a. returns across the agribusiness and food cycles. We will prudently allocate capital, technology, and management support in those critical areas across supply chains or business activities with a view to unlocking commercial potential wherever it may be: listed/unlisted, geography, small & large. Where appropriate we will invest in early stage unlisted companies and use our expertise to guide those companies through the various development phases to achieve full commercialisation of their ideas. Underpinning our every action is the need to add shareholder value.

Strategy

Our strategy is to achieve superior returns over a 3 year time horizon by leveraging our expertise, experience and networks. We aim to:

  1. invest in companies that are in control of their destiny, scalable and undervalued.

  2. target companies with cost structures that are in the lower half of the relevant cost curve.

  3. identify value added steps that withstand cycles.

  4. own listed equities.

  5. own unlisted companies with a 12-24 month path to an IPO and/or convertible note position.
