Securing the Future: Investing in Innovation for Food and Defense

Security is a fundamental aspect of human existence, and two of the most critical aspects of security are food and defense. While they may seem unrelated, they both require concerted efforts and innovative solutions to thrive. 

For food, the developing world’s middle class is expected to keep improving their diets by consuming more protein, which could lead to a surge in demand for grains worldwide. Urban development continues to encroach upon the world’s finite farmland resources leading to the loss of arable land. Protecting arable land and innovating on the ground we have remaining will be crucial in ensuring food security. 

As the population continues to grow, the value of farmland is likely to increase, and investing in productive acreage is a way to support the future of agriculture while also generating returns on investment.

For defense, the US has one of the largest defense budgets in the world, and the National Defense Authorization Act is one of the few budgets in the US where we still have bipartisan approval, even during times of economic uncertainty. The US has a strong tradition of innovation in the defense sector, and many of the technologies developed for military applications have had significant civilian benefits as well. 

Investing in defense companies can therefore provide exposure to cutting-edge technologies that may have applications in a range of industries across civil and military complexes.

Security is a multifaceted concept and our most recent product launches focus on these two critical aspects, funding innovation for a safer and more prosperous future, while creating opportunities for investors.
