SLM Partners identifies the best local managers with a track record of implementing profitable and sustainable farming systems. We assemble local teams close to the land and take responsibility for the delivery of results. Our management teams are rooted in local cultures and have a deep understanding of local ecology and market dynamics. We do not believe in ‘spreadsheet agriculture’ managed from afar, nor in outsourcing critical land management decisions to third parties whose interests may not be aligned with our clients.
SLM Partners combines this operational expertise with an understanding of finance and the needs of institutional investors. It is this combination of operational managers with investment professionals that is essential to channelling investment capital towards rural land.
Our first project has focused on extensive cattle grazing in Australia. But we are assessing opportunities in other agricultural sectors. SLM Partners is always interested in hearing from land managers with experience of applying profitable and sustainable agro-ecological systems who would like to scale up.
