Online platform Agri Investor interviewed CEO Cullen Gunn following the launch of capital raising for the Australian Farmlands Fund and Kilter Water Fund.
Cullen says investing in agriculture and improving the environment can be achieved simultaneously, which is core to Kilter Rural’s activities. ‘We don’t believe it’s either/or, that you’re either farming or protecting the environment – we do both together,’ he says.
The AFF raised A$20 million for its first tranche in October last year, with a capital raise target of A$500 million to be gathered in A$100 million tranches.
‘The strategy is to invest in landscape transformation to get asset value uplift, which will be built on new, highly efficient irrigation systems.’
