Omega Ratios of Canadian Farmland

How certain can you be that Canadian farmland will hit your return targets?

CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA, October 15, 2020 / — Omega Ratios of Canadian Farmland


How certain can you be that Canadian farmland will hit your return targets? According to a recent Omega ratio research report from Veripath Farmland Partners the likelihood over most return ranges is high. The Omega ratio is a weighted risk-return ratio for a given level of expected return that helps to identify the probability of winning in comparison to losing – higher the better.

Carmon Blacklock, VP of Investments & Operations at Veripath Farmland Partners, stated that “according an internal review of the Canadian farmland investment market over the last 10 and 20 years, a farmland holding would have generated Omega ratios substantially above 1.0 for a return threshold of 5%. At a return threshold of 10% the Omega ratios were still substantially above 1.0 in the 10-year period, while ranging between 0.3 and 0.55 for the 20-year period.”

“Our data shows that even with relatively high nominal return requirements farmland in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Canada – based on the last 10 and 20 years – can be reasonably expected to meet or exceed portfolio expectations; it is a high-quality investment” states Mr. Blacklock

Veripath’s research confirms that you can put Canadian farmland into a portfolio and have a high likelihood of achieving portfolio targets and a low likelihood of underperformance.
