The Anson Approach allows you to understand your business and farming operation at a strategic level, providing a perspective for more effective decision making and greater likelihood of success.
Agricultural operations have many similar attributes to a non-agricultural business. They produce (grow) a product which requires some kind of processing (harvesting, mustering, processing, packaging), transport and sale to a customer.
When agri-operations are broken down to their fundamentals, the true nature of the operation can be analysed and assessed for methods to increase productivity, profitability, management ability and risk mitigation.
Anson consultants have extensive agricultural experience, meaning they understand the ‘issues of the land’ and can apply business principles to the topic at hand, without delays for lack of rural industry knowledge.
Farm financial management and operational efficiency (or strategy) is increasingly important, particularly as modern farming systems require greater outputs from fewer resources. Input costs are rising at higher rates than product sales prices, meaning to maintain profitability fewer resources must be used to produce the same output.
In the 1990’s to 2000’s new varieties and farming technologies provided these efficiency gains. Today, efficiency improvements are commonly seen from improving business and financial management tools — this is how Anson Advisory can be ‘your advantage’.
Anson Advisory can provide the tools, skills and competitive advantage to achieve the management efficiency required to compete with those companies that can afford to have these services in-house.
An example, clients sought our advice on the purchase of a $2+ million horticultural property, its feasibility, risk, on-going operation and profitability, ownership structure, funding application and negotiation of the purchase price and conditions. The clients are now reaping the rewards of that deal.
