Farm Equity AgVantage

Whether you are agricultural fund or operating company; whether you are involved in production agriculture or are an agribusiness, you can use Farmer Mac’s Farm Equity AgVantage product to provide the wholesale capital you need to fund your assets. With Farm Equity AgVantage, your institution gains access to an easy to use facility, with a low cost of funds, that can be used to expand farm or agribusiness operations, purchase new assets, or develop existing assets.

How It Works:

  • Lender applies to be a Farm Equity AgVantage facility participant and completes the facility documentation
  • Lender identifies the eligible collateral that it intends to use to secure the borrowing from the facility and Farmer Mac reviews the collateral and approves
  • The counter-party may then issue Farm Equity AgVantage securities to Farmer Mac under the facility, generating low-cost capital that it can use to invest in its business

Key Features:

  • Use existing assets as collateral for borrowing low-cost debt capital
  • Facility is easy to use, with quick execution and with a full suite of available loan structures
  • The financing is provided at the entity level, as opposed to the individual asset level, and is designed to be flexible in the use of proceeds
