Water is vital to life. It sustains us, it has absolutely no substitutes and is the limiting factor of production in virtually every agricultural system on the planet. Water demand is increasing each year as the world continues to grow more food and fiber and accommodates the needs of a growing population.
Australia has one of the most advanced and differentiated water trading markets in the world. While both water and land are considered property, water and water rights (called “entitlements” in Australia) trade separately and independently from land. They are permanent, transferable, can be mortgaged, allocations can be leased, they are regulated, and registered by Federal and State governments. Holders of water entitlements are allocated a volume of water each year that can be either used or sold to other agricultural water users. The water we lease is anchored with contractual protections against inflation, with lease rates increasing annually based on the Australian CPI.
Investing with Aqua Ceres in Australian water enables investors to invest directly in Australian water entitlements and allocations without any exposure to farm ownership and the operational risk involved in farming.
