“I believe that natural resource investing offers some very attractive attributes for institutional clients looking for capital preservation, attractive risk adjusted returns, and diversification in a low interest rate environment. IWC is a focused specialist with a strong track-record in a market with a low, but growing penetration. Our aim to be one of the leading agriculture investment management teams in Europe by 2020.”
