AcreTrader was created with a simple mission: to 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 forms of real estate. However, buying land directly is extremely difficult, and the few investing options available have high fees, very limited liquidity, and no control over portfolio composition. AcreTrader aims to offer transparency, security, and liquidity while eliminating the friction and headaches traditionally associated with owning land.
