Positive Asset Management in a Changing Rural Economy

Our White Paper, “Positive Asset Management in a Changing Rural Economy”, discusses how the current financial climate is an opportune time when conditions are ripe for rural estate owners to pursue ambitious business growth and diversification. It goes on to provide the reader with five principles based on our experience to achieve successful rural diversification.

Some might say that ours is an age of uncertainty, but we believe it’s also one of opportunity. If estate managers adopt an entrepreneurial attitude to manage their businesses then they will preserve their assets for future generations.

Within the White Paper we highlight three key factors in the current climate, proving that the wider economic, environmental and social conditions have never been more suited to the growth of rural businesses:

Planning deregulation – Where planning was once a barrier to growth, it’s now an instrument to its achievement.

Consumerism in the countryside – The public’s growing affinity with the countryside and how to capitalise on its consumer appeal.

Investment landscape – A positive investment culture that now favours rural enterprises.

In response to these factors, our White Paper identifies five key principles for positive asset management with the intention of helping estate owners make the very most of the opportunities before them.
