Eligible Investments and Investment Instruments
The AATIF focuses on investments into the agricultural sector. It targets small, medium and large scale agricultural farms as well as agricultural businesses along the entire agricultural value chain which will be financed directly or indirectly. Direct Investments comprise among others cooperatives, commercial farms, processing companies while Indirect Investments relate to investments into local financial institutions or other intermediaries (such as large agribusinesses) which on-lend to the agricultural sector, to fund e.g. smallholders or small and medium enterprises.
In pursuing its investment strategy, the Investment Manager will strive to continuously cooperate with established input providers and off-takers already involved in the agricultural value chain as well as with risk insurers to enhance the viability of the investment. The structural chart displayed below illustrates the investment instruments and relevant eligibility criteria for each investment type.
