Tackling UK Farming’s Funding Shortfall

Helping reform UK’s agriculture and alternative energy industries

The financial crisis of 2008 forced many investors to re-evaluate the economic factors they previously took for granted. We have all had to face up to the fact that we are living in a new world of risk and opportunity where old hunting grounds for predictable returns no longer exist. Austerity and a change in the regulation of the banking sector are having unanticipated consequences on the way businesses are financed and the role banks play in the economy, in turn creating opportunities for other market participants.

The printing of money by central banks is changing the complexion of global financial markets. Higher premiums are being placed on real assets like property in preference to less tangible options. Traditional sources of yield have dried up and investors are now turning to alternative investments and equities for more stable and predictable returns.

These macro trends within the investment universe are clearly exhibited by equity market volumes, which have tended to stay below 2007 levels. More evidence comes from real wages, which have failed to rise, and while unemployment has dropped, government debt piles have remained steadfastly high.

From an investor’s perspective, there are worrying signs of deflation in the global economy, and markets that have acted as traditional sources of diversification, like commodities, have failed to provide the returns they historically delivered. Good examples can be seen in many of the core commodity markets in the last 12 months, for instance.
