June 07, 2023

Collaboration Makes Creating a Diversified Portfolio of U.S. Farm and Timberland Investments More Accessible

Fayetteville, Ark.AcreTrader, the land investment platform at the intersection of agriculture, tech and finance, announced today its strategic alliance with Gridline, the alternative asset marketplace revolutionizing access to private market investing. The alliance heralds a new, approachable way to invest in United States farm and timberland for registered investment advisors (RIAs), family offices and other wealth management professionals.

Both individually and through this collaboration, AcreTrader and Gridline aim to make high-quality alternative assets more obtainable. While looking for a solution to expand access to farm and timberland, AcreTrader was struck by Gridline’s expertise in making diversified portfolio exposure to historically exclusive and prohibitively expensive private market opportunities available to investors.

“Gridline is passionate about giving entry to asset classes that were previously inaccessible to the majority of investors. Combining forces with Gridline is a natural step forward as we pursue our mission of empowering our customers to buy and sell land smarter with advanced technology, data and expertise. We are thrilled to work with Gridline and their skilled team to expand access to one of the oldest and historically stable asset classes in existence,” said Carter Malloy, Founder and CEO of AcreTrader.

“Because most farmland sales occur in private transactions, having a strong network in the industry is critical to sourcing high-quality investment opportunities. In addition to providing a robust pipeline of opportunities, AcreTrader delivers valuable diligence insights that will inform Gridline’s portfolio construction via Acres, its industry-leading technology and dedicated team that has directly purchased and managed hundreds of millions of dollars worth of farm and timberland,” said Logan Henderson, Gridline CEO.

Since its founding in 2018, AcreTrader has completed over 130 farmland investments totaling approximately $400 million. Their industry relationships and 120+ person team of highly qualified individuals provide maximum exposure to deal flow and scalable investing.
