Gateway’s Marketing Funnel helps Investors find new opportunities in South American

More and more of our South American vendors want to promote their properties using digital and social media tools along with local traditional media. To assist with this we are going to increase the number of marketing opportunities for their properties to appear in. This will be a substantial benefit for those with well presented and market priced properties but will mean some properties will have to be dropped if they fail to fit into this criteria or they will quickly become over exposed and unsalable.

Continued disruption affecting Agriculture

The progressive consolidation of the smaller farms, the growing vertical integration of private companies in certain chains and the relative weight of farm cooperatives, is the beginning of a disruptive trend that challenges the input and processing industry. With this incipient equalization of forces, industrial companies that do not anticipate and adjust their business strategies could lose volume and/or fall into a pricing war that impacts their profitability. In the United States, the 2017 agricultural…

Mistakes to avoid when investing in real estate in Latin America

Investing in real estate may seem simple enough. Considered one of the most profitable businesses for investors this is a market that tends to offer low risk and high rewards. Latin America is rich with opportunity right now. Relatively cheap land not only for properties but for harvest and cattle breeding presents valuable opportunities. Investors should get involved in the market, so that they receive higher margins in the future.  However, it becomes very different and more complicated when you decide…

Latin America and Free Trade Score a Big Win

A trade pact between the European Union and Mercosur opens doors on both sides of the Atlantic. Argentina’s foreign minister fought back tears. President Maurico Macri called it “the most important agreement ever signed in our history.” Latin America’s biggest economy would soon be “reborn,” predicted a top aide to Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, who likewise heralded the “great day.” The June 28 deal between the European Union and Mercosur was…

Changing Farmland Investing Options

We think farmland as an investment is something that in 5-10 years will be a must in any professionally managed diversified portfolio. We are excited to be at the forefront of reporting the rapid changes in this exciting new market which is now opening more opportunities for smaller investors via syndicates and specialised agro funds. Those smaller investors ( USD 50,000 to USD 200,000 ) seeking exposure to real assets with strong cash yields and low volatility have found it nearly impossible to get direct…

Soy: What you need to know about this challenging crop

Can a “hidden” commodity have a sustainable future? It’s the protein at the heart of the global food system. But most people are hardly aware of how much soy they eat – and where it comes from. Why is soy such an essential crop? And what’s being done to make sure it’s grown responsibly? We’re all familiar with soy. There are varieties aplenty: from vibrant green edamame beans (eaten straight from the pod) to tofu and tempeh. There are soy burgers, “meatballs,”…

Argentina and Brazil look more promising

Argentina’s Merval and Brazil’s Bovespa were Latin America’s standout equity indices this quarter. In Argentina investors are encouraged by both the nascent economic recovery and President’s Macri’s improving standing in the polls ahead of October’s presidential election. In Brazil it appears that momentum has finally swung behind pension reform, which should improve public finances.

Will Farming Change: Artificial Meat Arrives

Trade deal with EU huge boost for South American bloc

The historic trade agreement signed Friday in Brussels is a massive shot in the arm for the four-nation South American bloc known as Mercosur. The trade alliance grouping Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay has struggled for momentum since it was set up in 1991. Though the agreement eliminates tariffs against the EU in key sectors, the bloc still has to get its own house in order, according to analyst Nicolas Albertoni of the University of Southern California. “Nearly 30 years after its creation…

Latin America holds 42% of the world’s agriculture expansion potential

Latin America is one of the few regions of the world where agriculture production can expand since it holds 42% of that potential globally. Latin America is a net exporter of food and plays an important role when addressing the challenge of increasing world food production so as to guarantee food security in the future. “In spite of the regrettable abandonment of agriculture and the campo suffered during several decades not so long ago”, the sector is bound to adopt a vanguard role given the global…

Foreign Farm Investors in Brazil sow seeds of openness

On the high plains around the town of Luiz Eduardo Magalhães in central Brazil, it is easy to feel dwarfed by the landscape. Fields of soya, maize and cotton stretch to the horizon under immense blue skies, only the occasional tree, silo or patch of scrubby cerrado woodland giving any sense of scale. Twin-wagoned lorries are laden with soya thunder along the highways. Away from the main roads, human beings are a rarity, glimpsed only in the cabins of combine harvesters or, in the late afternoon as the…
