Rice Investment: Invest in the World's Poor For Great Returns

March 20, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 65

Most investors over the last 5 years will have been frustrated by the poor level of returns that have been delivered from traditional asset classes. For those still invested in Equities and Bonds, they have seen their returns disappear and be replaced by higher levels of volatility. Now the main focus for the average investor is capital preservation.

The commodity market has always been the poor relation next to the Equity and Bond market, whilst most people only look at Gold and precious metals there are other commodity markets quietly delivering returns to investors.

Rough Rice is classified as a soft commodity and it shares this classification, sugar, cotton, coffee, cocoa, orange Juice and lumber.

Rice investment over the last 5 years would have been a very lucrative investment. In 2007 the price per metric tonne was $10 and only 3 months later the price per metric tonne had risen to $25. This has dropped back recently to $15 per metric tonne, showing that even in this market there is some volatility.

For investors, volatility means risk and so some will see that this market is too risky to invest in. a rice investment though does not have to be risky and can be safe and predictable without the increasing price swings seen in the commodity markets.

There is a rice investment that will deliver good returns to the investor in a predictable way as well as helping the poor, with increasing food production and lower prices. This is a very socially responsible way to invest for the benefit of your portfolio and the worlds poor.

You can own your own rice field in Africa. The advantage of this is that you the investor leases prime arable land on a 49 year lease. This by many could be considered a risky investment, but in many countries Governments realise the importance of feeding their population. Governments have drawn up documentation with the help of the World bank to protect the legal rights of overseas investors.

Even in African countries there is competition for land to be developed and by overseas investment, this land is kept within the agricultural sector. Once protected within the agricultural sector, the money raised is use to improve the infrastructure so that farming becomes more efficient.

The rice investment delivers a return to the investor in two ways, firstly through an annual yield on the crop. This has been projected as around 15% but in some places this has been as high as 18%.

The rice investment also delivers a yield to the investor through an increased value in the arable land. As the land increases the level of crop that is produced the economic value of the land rises. After about 5 years there is a plan to sell all the leases to a large financial institution. The sale of this land should deliver for the investor a 100% capital appreciation in the value of the land.

To minimum investment for this rice investment is £5,850, and it is estimated that it will deliver a return over 5 years of £16,801. When the cash flows are discounted the internal rate of return on this investment is calculated as 27.9%.

This rice investment opportunity delivers secure returns at a time when most traditional asset classes are showing poor or negative returns to the investor. This investment not only boosts your portfolio it helps protect the poorest people in the World.
