NEW YORK, May 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Seafood is the world's most traded protein commodity, valued at over $180 billion, and driven by massive, modern and innovative companies around the globe.
The United Nations estimates that as the world's population increases, demand for seafood will dramatically outpace supply. The world's seafood, aquaculture and fisheries giants in control of these resources are positioned to grow to meet that expanding demand.
No ag portfolio should be without seafood – but most are.
That's why on May 23, at the W Hotel in the heart of New York City, IntraFish Media, the world's largest provider of news and information on the global seafood industry, in partnership with Pareto Securities, is bringing the world's top investors and seafood industry executives together for a full-day seminar of presentations from the world's largest seafood, aquaculture and fisheries companies, offering unrivaled insight into the opportunities in the sector.
From private equity to venture capital to institutional investors, the secret is getting out: Permira, Lion Capital, Rabobank, EQT Partners, Paine Schwartz, Bain Capital, Carlyle and Oaktree all have quietly entered the seafood sector, and have reaped the rewards of growth.
Agrifood, FMCG and pharmaceutical groups from Cargill to ADM to Zoetis have in recent years invested heavily in the aquaculture and fish feed sectors, and the still-fragmented and emerging industry has a lot more consolidating to do.
Seafood is an investment opportunity that you can't afford to miss, and no other venue or event can offer you insight into the sector like the Seafood Investor Forum.
Past forums have featured executives from: Marine Harvest, Cermaq, Thai Union, Ewos, Disney, Sysco, Multiexport, Gorton's, Iglo Group, Red Lobster, Icicle Seafoods, Trident Seafoods, Bakkafrost, Cooke Aquaculture, AquaChile, Austevoll Seafoods, Leroy Seafood Group, Oceana Group, Kampachi Farms, Ocean Choice International, Blumar, High Liner Foods, Clearwater Seafoods, The Clinton Global Initiative, Regal Springs, Nireus and many more.
Event attendees have included executives from Eagle Asset Management, Bonafide Wealth Management, Bregal Partners, Carlyle, Centre Partners, Brookside Capital, Calypso Capital, Cartesian Capital, Axon Capital, AGR Partners, BNP Paribas, China Select Capital, The Prince's International Sustainability Unit (ISU), Bloomberg Philanthropies, Black River Asset Management, Conti Street Partners, Counterpoint Capital, Baring Asset Management and many more.
