Member of the APF Group

Who we are?

Agrární půdní fond s.r.o. (APF), or the Agrarian Land Fund, was established as a startup by a combination of an investor, a real estate broker and agricultural land traders in the Czech Republic. It is currently part of the APF Group, which primarily focuses on farmland investments.

APF is a real estate mediator in accordance with the law, the Real Estate Mediation Act, with professional liability insurance in the amount of CZK 20 million.

APF has been entered in the list of persons performing asset management comparable to asset management within the meaning of § 15 odst. 1 of the Investment Companies and Investment Funds Act maintained by the ČNB in accordance with Section § 596 písm. e) ZISIF (alternative fund).

Where we came from?

In 2015, we started off as real estate brokers specialising in agricultural land working under the Czech Republic’s largest real estate company. Through APF’s current owner, we made our first investment into agricultural land in 2016. This investment was CZK 550,000 with a gross return on investment of 40%. Up to the establishment of APF, the owner traded only as a natural person. After the first transaction, the owner gradually gained personal capital equal to roughly CZK 11 million, which was then invested into APF.

Our Skills and Why Clients Seek Us Out?

Thanks to our experience, knowledge and expertise, we can select agricultural land suitable for potential investment, determine its current market price, future returns and, by extension, its future market value and, ultimately, sell the land with these facts in mind. The average gross return is around 20% per annum.

And thanks to our skill in the field affirmed by many previous transactions, we can afford to guarantee future returns through a preliminary contract of sale.

Our Past Achievements:

The company’s current Portfolio Manager won the award for the best real estate broker in the Czech Republic at the largest real estate company on the domestic market for both the years 2019 and 2020. So far, he has conducted 1,164 client transactions with a total value exceeding CZK 687 million.

We gained most of our private clients through working with a real estate company, who started working with us based on client recommendations. Our Portfolio Manager has received upward of 900 recommendations. Our “numerous” previous transactions are attested by the following figures:

How we operate?

We work primarily with real demand in individual locations at predetermined land parameters (type of land, acreage, climate zone, location, placement within the cadastral area, agricultural lease, time before sale).

We focus on the main areas of agricultural production. We choose plots of land which, based on our experience, knowledge and completed transactions, are undervalued in terms of their current market price or their parameters. We carefully assess the agricultural lease conditions. We focus on stable portfolio returns (starting at 10% per annum) with an emphasis on market rent.

We then put the selected plots back on the market through our partnered real estate agency.  We do not take into account any potential increase in agricultural land prices, nor do we try to predict it.  We respond to developments in market demand or specific requirements of interested parties and, of course, account for changes in the Czech Republic’s macroeconomic and legislative conditions.

Last but not least, we have knowledge of agricultural issues acquired through university education.

Thanks to our close cooperation with a real estate agency, we have access to an extensive database of those interested in agricultural land, created by our own active trading. We employ all of the available marketing means of the partnered real estate agency to effectively offer our land.

What we strive for?

To give small and medium-sized non-agricultural investors and savers the opportunity to invest in agricultural land as a finite factor of production which has dramatically increased in importance over the last few years. With your long-term investment, you will support an acceptable distribution of land ownership in the Czech Republic and acquire a conservative alternative to investing in banking products which also has a more interesting appreciation.

You practically do not have to worry about the investment, as we manage the land automatically within the portfolio. For most of our products, you remain as the owner for the entirety of the duration of your investment to ensure that you have your investment under control.
