NASHVILLE, TN / ACCESSWIRE / November 21, 2023 / Alto, a platform that enables individuals to invest in alternative assets using their retirement funds, today announced an expanded partnership with Farmland LP, one of the largest fund managers specializing in organic farmland. Farmland LP is making its Vital Farmland Fund III ("Fund III") available on the Alto Marketplace, allowing accredited investors to invest in a real asset-managed farmland fund.

"We're pleased to partner with Farmland LP to further enhance our range of fund offerings in unique and specialized segments of alternative investments, catering to the needs of accredited investors," said Scott Harrigan, CEO of Alto Securities. "This partnership will offer accredited investors an opportunity to invest in a fund that is typically not accessible to retail investors, diversifying their portfolios into a largely uncorrelated asset class to the public markets."

Vital Farmland Fund III, a 506(c) Regulation D offering, is focused on acquiring and converting conventional, chemical-based farms through conversion to organic and regenerative agriculture, seeking to generate returns for investors while promoting sustainability. Farmland LP, as a farmland investment management firm, has successfully acquired and managed over 16,000 acres of farmland in Northern California, Oregon, and Washington, amassing a portfolio exceeding $275 million in farmland assets over the last 14 years.

"The Alto platform is a terrific platform for accredited investors to invest in Fund III using retirement funds," said Craig Wichner-Founder and Managing Partner of Farmland LP. "We already have a large number of investors in our prior funds that use their IRA accounts and we are pleased to be working with Alto to expand this offering to their client base."

Traditionally, alternative investments were largely limited to ultra-high-net-worth individuals and institutional investors due to their complexity and higher minimum investment requirements. Alto, aims to broaden access by offering accredited investors the opportunity to explore these unique investment options through their IRAs.
