Australia has one of the most advanced and differentiated water trading markets in the world. Water and land are both considered property. Water rights (called “entitlements” in Australia) trade separately and independently from land and are 100% deemed for agriculture. They are permanent, transferable, and can be mortgaged.
Holders of water entitlements receive that volume of water each year, which can be either used or sold to other agricultural water users. Since the ‘Water Fund’ does not own any farms, we sell the annual allocation of water in the form of leases.
Returns are based on capital appreciation of the entitlements and income received from selling the annual water allocations.
Investing with Aqua Ceres enables investors to invest directly in Australian Permanent Water Rights.
