We estimate the Australian agricultural investment universe to be ~A$250b of investment grade assets.
Opportunity currently exists for investors to partner with Growth Farms to invest in and across the Australian agricultural sector.
The Australian Agricultural Lease Fund is a 10 year closed end wholesale fund which was established to acquire farmland across Australia on behalf of investors and lease it out to third party farm operators. This vehicle will capture any capital appreciation as well as provide investors with a steady form of lease income.
The target total annual return for the fund is 10-12% post fees, with a target annual distribution of 3.5 – 4.0%.
The fund offers investors exposure to an uncorrelated asset class with the aim of reducing risk by leasing all assets to tenants.
Investment applications closed on 31 December 2018 and the fund is now in the final stages of deployment.
Separate Managed Accounts offer investors a bespoke avenue through which they can develop their own investment mandate alongside Growth Farms to suit their own investment profile.
Growth Farms currently has the capacity to work with investors to develop investment mandates, acquire and manage Australian agricultural assets.
Growth Farms also offers to take over management for current farm owners looking to retire or for new management and improved performance.
