SLM Partners is an asset manager that acquires and manages rural land on behalf of institutional investors. Our mission is to scale up regenerative, ecological farming and forestry systems that deliver financial returns and environmental benefits.
We take a long-term perspective, adopting land management approaches that minimize synthetic inputs, increase resilience to climatic volatility and enhance soil fertility, while producing food and other commodities at a competitive cost.
SLM Partners focuses on opportunities in countries with stable regulatory environments, competitive agricultural or forestry sectors, and good access to international markets.
Our clients include pension funds, insurance companies and family offices. We look to partner with operational managers on the ground who know how to work with nature to deliver profitable and sustainable outcomes.
Our first project – the SLM Australia Livestock Fund – has acquired grazing land in Australia for beef cattle production. We manage the SLM Silva Fund, a sustainable Irish forestry fund. SLM Partners is developing new organic farmland investment strategies in North America.
