Investors Reportedly Eyes Stake In Glencore's Agriculture Business

The sovereign wealth fund of Qatar has joined investors expressing an interest in buying a minority stake in agriculture business of Glencore Plc (LSE:GLEN), according to three people familiar with the conversations. The talks are preliminary and a sale would take as long as six months, said the same people, who asked not to be identified because the matter is confidential.

(TSE:8031) and Canada Pension Plan Investment Board the country’s largest pension manager.
