Webinar 27 May 2020: Ag Supply Chain Disruptions and Opportunities During the Coronavirus Pandemic
Global AgInvesting (GAI), the leading resource for investment conferences, news and insight into the global agricultural sector, is now hosting topical webinars to keep the GAI community engaged and informed in between events, as well as provide a new offering while restrictions are imposed on gatherings due to COVID-19.
In this critical discussion, two of Australia’s leading agricultural asset managers – Tim McGavin of Laguna Bay and Kim Morison of Argyle Capital Partners – will consider the effects of the novel coronavirus on production and distribution of myriad crop types, animal proteins and consumer products. McGavin, who is CEO of Laguna Bay, is an experienced originator and investor, specializing in agriculture and renewable energy. McGavin was raised on a sheep and cattle farm, and through an investment with his brother, is co-owner of one of Australia’s largest privately-owned vineyards (though they sold the majority of their holdings in 2001).
Morison is managing director for Argyle Capital Partners, based in Los Angeles, California, where he has been directing the development of the company’s water and agricultural investment business since 2010. His family farming origins and career in the cotton and sugar industries have steered his approach to water entitlement and farmland investment portfolios.
