Fee structure and services

Our fee structure varies depending on a number of factors:

  • Size of investment – The higher the investment level, the more flexible we are able to be on fees as economies of scale become achievable with respect to transaction costs and management. (Click here for more detail on our investment packages.)
  • Services required – We offer a range of services from complete turnkey investment solutions involving initial research and advice, due diligence, acquisition and post-investment management or any combination thereof. (Click here for more detail on our services.)
  • Management model – We have different fee models depending on whether you chose a fixed lease model or whether we are fully responsible for the operational management of your agricultural assets. (Click here for more detail on the different management options.)

We are happy to discuss fixed or variable fee arrangements, however, as a general rule we prefer to incorporate a performance linked component. In our experience the stronger the alignment of interests the better the outcome for all parties.

If you would like to have a preliminary no obligations discussion with us about what tailored service and fee package would best meet your own investment requirements, please feel free contact us. Alternatively, if you would prefer us to contact you, please click here to complete the contact form and we will be happy to have the appropriate member of staff call you to begin discussions on a strictly confidential basis.
