Nashville, TN – May 7, 2018 – LandFund Partners, a farmland investment and management firm, has announced the successful purchase of the first property in its fourth fund. Fund IV, a value-add strategic fund, accepted over $12 million of investor commitments in its first closing.
“We are very pleased with the first property in Fund IV. It is a property with tremendous upside potential. We will now execute our plan to improve the irrigation infrastructure and value of the first property,” said John Farris, Founder & President.
Fund IV builds on the firm’s regional presence in the lower Mississippi River Valley, and will remain open to investors until hitting its $30 million equity raise hard cap.
Chris Morris, Managing Director, added, “Investor demand for Fund IV has exceeded our expectations – we have raised over one-third of our total target in less than 60 days. Our investors are viewing farmland as a real asset that offers non-correlated returns and inflation hedging. We expect to hit our capital raise target in the next few months.”
The firm, which manages over $125 million of farmland in the Mid-South, plans to purchase several more of its Fund IV pipeline properties in 2018.
