AcreTrader Announces Millions in Investor Distributions
Company Celebrates Strong Year-End Returns for Investors from Farmland and Timberland Investments
(Fayetteville, Ark.)— AcreTrader, the land investment platform at the intersection of agriculture, tech and finance, last week announced over 5,600 distributions to investors.
Over 90% of the company’s active investment properties generated a distribution this year that was greater than or equal to what was anticipated by AcreTrader’s internal models, indicating the resiliency of the asset class against significant economic headwinds.
Land investments generate returns in two ways: appreciation over time plus possible income from agricultural production or timber harvest on the land. Annual income, when available, is distributed to investors in each property proportionally to their ownership percentage, while appreciation is typically captured upon exit, or sale, of the asset.
Since its founding in 2018, 124 land investments have been funded on the AcreTrader platform. To date, five of those farms have been sold, otherwise known as “exited.” Each of the five farm exits as of year end 2022 have generated final IRRs above 10% and above initial projections.
“We are pleased that so many of our investors are seeing positive returns in a year of turbulent markets. We’re also happy to see our farming partners experiencing success on their farms. Our ideal investment scenario is one in which both farmers and investors win, and this year’s successful round of distributions has shown that to be the case,” said Michael Iseman, AcreTrader Director of Operations.
