About the Global Food Exchange: Through the creation of the Global Food Exchange (GFE), the world's most in demand commodities, food and water, have become the world's most in demand asset class.

Food as an Asset Class is a unique investment that before today has lacked securitization. While everyone appreciates the value of food, the ability to invest in this highly dependable asset has been difficult, if not impossible, until now. Once deployed, the food and water purification systems are used by relief organizations to aid individuals suffering from dehydration or starvation. We call this Doing Well by Doing Good, said Mr. Reed of Americas Food Security Fund.
About the AFS Fund: Americas Food Security Fund (AFS Fund) directs the investments of its clients, who have a vision for resolving a global inefficiency that costs millions of lives, with the strategic provisioning of nutritious food and clean water to relief agencies in a highly efficient manner.
