Our Team

ROOTED IN ONTARIO

AGinvest founders come from a farm background. Our company is led by people who have spent a lifetime working on and servicing Ontario farms. Our local knowledge and a sharp focus gives us a strong advantage for achieving a better return for our shareholders, more responsive service to farm families and more productive partnerships with farm operators.
