• We are Kilter Rural

    Australia’s most experienced natural capital investment manager. Delivering uncorrelated returns to investors for 20 years through sustainable food production, water management, biodiversity protection and climate change mitigation.

  • Kilter Agriculture Fund

    production | protection | reduction

    Returns to investors, sustainable food production, biodiversity protection and emissions reduction outcomes at scale across more than 7000ha of Australia’s most important natural capital.


  • The Murray-Darling Basin Balanced Water Fund

    Australia’s only explicit impact water fund investing in southern Murray-Darling Basin water markets to deliver financial, social and environmental returns by providing water to irrigation communities, water to the environment and water to culturally important wetlands and ecosystems.


  • Kilter Water Fund

    Investing in a specialised portfolio of water entitlements, generating financial returns through the delivery of proprietary water products to Australian irrigation farmers.


Kilter Rural was established in 2004 to deliver profit with impact – investing at scale in the regeneration of farmland, water and environmental protection.

Kilter Rural has been awarded the category winner for the Murray-Darling Basin Balanced Water Fund in the Environment and Agriculture category at the 2023 AFR Sustainability Awards. This is a wonderful recognition of our long-term commitment to delivering investor returns with impact.

By 2050 the world will need to feed 50% more people. Addressing food needs without exacerbating the degradation of natural capital will depend on stabilising the world’s current agricultural footprint and producing more food through the regeneration of existing farmland.

Our purpose is to profitably improve Australian farmland, water and ecosystems at scale and generate long-term, resilient and uncorrelated inflation-protected returns for investors.

There are currently three funds open to investors: The Murray Darling Basin Balanced Water Fund, and the Kilter Water Fund and the new Kilter Agriculture Fund
