Products & Services - Agribusiness and Capital Markets

Committed to food and agribusiness industries. 

Our experienced Agribusiness and Capital Markets (ACM) Teams understand the unique needs of agribusinesses, the marketplace, and large-scale financing. AgCountry acts as both a lead lender and lending capacity partner, along with other lenders, to serve the capital needs of large, complex borrowers. These borrowers produce, process, market, and distribute agricultural products and services to rural America. 

We understand trends in agriculture and the cyclical nature of commodity markets. AgCountry supports the capital needs of the food, fiber, energy, communication, and utility industries serving rural America through originated, syndicated, participated, and shared credit facilities. Our experience working through economic and diversified industry cycles allows us to tailor financial packages to meet specific capital needs. Our lending experience includes rated and unrated private and public companies.
