Appetites for change: where food meets finance

Jeremy Coller speaking at Ceres Conference 2017

We face a moment of disruptive innovation in our food system — fueled by shifting consumer expectations for healthy, sustainable options and an existing structure cracking under the strains of climate change, diminished water supplies, and growing risks to human health. These pressures are unleashing a wave of new investment risks and opportunities, across asset classes and geographies. From shifting protein sources to regenerative farming practices to more resilient supply chains — all will require a radical rethink in how investors and companies allocate capital and maximize risk-adjusted returns.
