La rentabilité de l’actif farmland

Private equity dans l’agriculture danoise Blue Harvest. La libéralisation du marché agricole danois offre des opportunités d’achat aux investisseurs étrangers. L’agriculture danoise se situe au premier rang européen en terme de valeur ajoutée nette par ferme, selon le rapport de l’UE Farm Economics 2012. Depuis trois ans, le gouvernement a liberalisé ce secteur et ouvert la possibilité aux non-Danois d’acquérir une ferme au Danemark, tant que cette dernière reste cultivée selon la réglementation du pays et en collaboration avec un fermier local. Le prix du terrain agricole ayant chuté de 40 à 50% depuis le pic de 2008, il se trouve désormais au niveau de 2006. Les terres danoises s’échangent aujourd’hui autour de 16.000 euros l’hectare, contre 24.900 aux Royaume-Uni ou 18.900 dans la corn belt aux Etats-Unis. Le rendement direct attendu peut être entre 3 et 7% selon le cas, sans tenir compte de l’appréciation du prix des terres arables à un horizon de 5 à 8 ans, soit un IRR entre 7% and 12%. Jens Ohnemus, CEO de Blue Harvest, explique cet actif farmland qui représente un investissement décorrélé des indices boursiers et une protection contre l’inflation. Les derniers changements législatifs ont ouvert aux étrangers la possibilité d’acquérir des fermes au Danemark. C’était déjà le cas au Royaume-Uni notamment où les prix des fermes ont fortement augmenté. Quels sont les avantages du Danemark pour un investisseur private equity? Le marché danois est comparable à celui des UK, qui est un marché dit “mature”. Cependant, le Danemark bénéficie actuellement d’une fenêtre d’opportunité. En effet, les banques danoises ont connu une crise locale du crédit en 2008. De nombreux fermiers ont été contraints de vendre leur exploitation alors que celle-ci était rentable. Ceci a entraîné [...]

Profitability of farmland as an asset class

By | 2017-07-07T11:06:58+00:00 July 8th, 2014|Press EN|

THE PROFITABILITY OF FARMLAND AS AN ASSET CLASS BLUE HARVEST. The liberalisation of the Danish agricultural market provides interesting investment opportunities to foreign investors. Jens Ohnemus CEO, Blue Harvest Danish agriculture is the European leader in terms of Farm net value added (FNVA) per Annual Work Unit (AWU)*, according to the ‘EU Farm Economics, 2012’ report. Three years ago the government liberalized the sector and opened up the possibility for non-Danes to acquire a farm in Denmark as long as the farm remains cultivated in accordance with existing regulations. The price of Danish farmland has fallen by 40 to 50% since the peak in 2008, and is now at 2006 levels, costing around EUR 16’000 per ha, compared to 24’900 in the UK or 18’900 in the corn-belt in the United States. The expected direct yield is between 3% and 7% depending on the case, for an IRR (Internal rate of return) of between 7% and 12%. […]

Jens Ohnemus: a gentleman farmer and banker !

By | 2017-07-07T11:06:58+00:00 July 8th, 2014|Press EN|

After an illustrious career in the banking world Jens Ohnemus founded Blue Harvest – a wealth-management company specialised in sourcing and acquiring farms in Denmark. With pictures of cows and wheat fields decorating the walls and miniature tractors in the bookshelves, Jens Ohnemus’ office clearly reflects his passion for the farming world, and evokes memories of his childhood in Denmark. This farmer’s son has an original background to say the least. While his heart pined for the plains of the north, it was in the banking world that he built his career. UBS in Zurich, Merrill Lynch and BNP Paribas in Geneva, a Director and Group Manager… The future seemed all mapped out. Then in 2008, in the midst of the banking crisis, the urge to create something all his own pushed this Dane to leave everything behind. “I wanted to challenge myself, to start my own business. It was now or never,” he fondly remembers. […]

Danish farmland investments: a window of opportunity

By | 2017-07-07T11:06:58+00:00 November 25th, 2013|Press EN|

Rising demand, steep declines in land prices, legislation facilitating foreign investment, and an ideal political and regulatory environment–Danish farmland represents a promising investment opportunity. Feeding a population expected to grow to 9.6 billion by 2050 will likely prove to be one of the greatest challenges that humanity will face. According to recent forecasts, the world population could reach 10.9 billion people by 2100. […]

Les terres arables danoises offrent une fenêtre d’opportunités

By | 2017-07-07T11:06:59+00:00 November 25th, 2013|Press FR|

Une demande en hausse, des prix du terrain qui ont fortement baissé, une ouverture aux investisseurs étrangers, un environnement réglementaire et poli tique idéal, les terres arables danoises offrent des perspectives d’investissement prometteuses. Nourrir les 9,6 milliards d’habitants attendus en 2050 représente l’un des plus grands défis que l’humanité devra relever ces prochaines années, la population devant se stabiliser à un niveau médian de 10,9 milliards en 2100, d’après les prévisions les plus récentes. Des investissements conséquents seront donc nécessaires, afin de développer la productivité agricole. Selon le rapport de la FAO paru en 2009, pour subvenir aux besoins de la population mondiale, la production agricole devra augmenter de 70 % d’ici 2050. […]
