Veripath Launches its Tax Deferred Land-Unit Swap Program For Farmers

Veripath Farmland Partners is pleased to announce that it has launched its Land-Unit Swap program for Canadian farmers. The exchange program allows farmers to transfer their land to Veripath on a tax deferred basis and receive the value in units in the partnership. 

The program is simple and very flexible and can be structured as 100% units or cash and units depending on requirements.  The idea behind the Veripath Land-Unit Swap program is to help Canadian farmers make more efficient estate and succession planning decisions.  Combined with the Veripath Lease Financing Program farmers who want to continue to farm the land can do so.

Since its launch Veripath has experienced rapid growth as capital allocators seek exposure to the Canadian farmland asset class.  Veripath’s offerings can be accessed through several full-service Canadian broker dealers. Utilizing a unique split fund, evergreen structure, Veripath opens the Canadian farmland thesis to the largest possible universe of investors and for the first time makes compliance with the various provincial farmland ownership regulations simple and straightforward.  Canadian farmland allocations have many compelling characteristics that make them a worthwhile portfolio allocation for both institutional and retail investors and Veripath’s structures are available to both.

Who is Veripath:  Veripath is a Canadian alternative investment firm. Members of Veripath’s management team have decades of farmland, private equity, and private credit investment experience.  Veripath implements its farmland strategy in a way that seeks to preserve as far as possible farmland’s low-volatility return profile – the attribute that generates a material portion of Canadian farmland’s superior risk adjusted returns. Veripath does this by seeking to minimize operational, weather, geographic and business-related risks – and capture the pure return from land appreciation.
