Seafood Investor Forum
May 23, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Seafood is the world’s most traded protein commodity, valued at over $180 billion, and driven by massive, modern and innovative companies around the globe.
The United Nations estimates that as the world’s population increases, demand for seafood will dramatically outpace supply. The world’s seafood, aquaculture and fisheries giants in control of these resources are positioned to grow to meet that expanding demand.
In short, no ag portfolio should be without seafood – but most are.
From private equity to venture capital to institutional investors, the secret is getting out: Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, Permira, Lion Capital, Rabobank, Paine Schwartz, Bain Capital and Oaktree all have quietly built up portfolios of investments in these sleeper companies, and have reaped the rewards of growth.
Agrifood, FMCG and pharmaceutical groups from Cargill to ADM to Zoetis have in recent years invested heavily in the aquaculture and fish feed sectors, and the still-fragmented and emerging industry has a lot more consolidating to do.
That’s why May 23, at the W Hotel in the heart of New York City, IntraFish Media, the world’s largest provider of news and information on the global seafood industry, in partnership with Pareto Securities, is bringing the world’s top investors and seafood industry executives together for a full-day seminar of presentations from the world’s largest seafood, aquaculture and fisheries companies, offering unrivalled insight into the opportunities in the sector.
Seafood is an investment opportunity that you can’t afford to miss, and no other venue or event can offer you insight into the sector like the Seafood Investor Forum.
