Pension funds are influential actors in global finance, managing more money than all sovereign wealth funds, hedge funds and private equity funds combined. Canada has some of the world's biggest pension funds and increasingly they are investing in farmland – both in Canada and in the Global South. Panelists will explore the impacts of this on farmers using a case study of one investment in Brazil and research on the situation in Canada, followed by discussion.
