4. AcreTrader


Founded: 2018

“AcreTrader was created with a simple mission: provide investors direct access to the highly attractive asset class of farmland.

Farmland is a high-return, low volatility asset class, with historical returns beating most major asset classes and other forms of real estate. Unfortunately, buying and maintaining farmland directly is extremely difficult. The few investment options that are available charge extremely high fees, provide almost no liquidity, and offer little or no choice over portfolio composition. In short, there has not been an easy, affordable way for most investors to participate. Until now.”

Five years later, the idea has grown into a full-service offering of business solutions that are driven by technology and the desire to help our clients excel in their respective industries.”
