SLM Partners focuses on countries at the lower end of the risk spectrum so that returns are primarily driven by a transformative land management strategy. When selecting geographies, SLM Partners carries out an analysis that looks at factors such as:
- Political risk
- Ease of investment in land
- Security of property rights
- Land prices and the economics of production
- Access to markets
These filters allow SLM Partners to focus on certain countries. But SLM Partner will only undertake activities when the most important factor is taken into account – the availability of local operational partners with a proven ecological land management system.
SLM Partners currently manages funds in Australia and Ireland, and we are developing new projects in North America.
