Centuria is pleased to provide investors the opportunity to participate in the Centuria Agriculture Fund (Fund), a new open-ended investment targeting high-quality sustainable agricultural investments with strong tenant covenants, which are well positioned to benefit from the continued growing demand for fresh food produce and other essential agricultural products.
Offering a starting distribution rate of 5.25 cents per unit (annualised, assuming equal monthly distributions)1, the Fund will be overseen by an active asset management team that features deep agricultural expertise and will aim to provide investors a regular monthly income stream with the potential for capital growth.
The Fund has secured a high quality seed asset located in Warragul, Victoria, which is underpinned by a triple net lease until November 2041 to one of Australia’s largest glasshouse producers of fresh food and vegetables. Located approximately 110 kilometres from the Melbourne CBD, the property is in close proximity to critical infrastructure, as well as emerging residential and employment precincts within the South East Melbourne Growth Corridor.
As opportunities are identified, it is anticipated that the Fund will undertake future capital raises in order to acquire additional properties for the portfolio.

The Responsible Entity intends to offer Investors the opportunity to withdraw their investment quarterly on a limited basis (March, June, September and December). The amount available to meet withdrawal requests for the quarter will be up to 2.5% of the Net Asset Value of the Fund, as calculated in accordance with each Constitution as at the last Business Day before the withdrawals are processed, and will be capped at 10% p.a. However, the Responsible Entity may in its discretion increase the amount available in a given quarter.
If the aggregate value of withdrawal requests received during the quarter exceeds the quarterly available funds, the Responsible Entity will scale back the withdrawal requests on a pro rata basis. The unmet portion of the withdrawal request will be deemed to carry over to the following quarter unless the Investor requests otherwise, or the Responsible Entity suspends withdrawals. The Responsible Entity is allowed up to 365 days in which to accept any withdrawal requests.
Please note, the nature of property as an investment class means the Responsible Entity may not be able to offer the liquidity opportunities it intends to offer in all circumstances. The Responsible Entity is not required to offer liquidity to Investors. Refer to the PDS for full terms on withdrawal and liquidity.
The Fund has a rolling five-year investment term. The Responsible Entity intends to offer a periodic liquidity event at the end of each investment term.
To provide liquidity under the periodic liquidity event, the Responsible Entity may:
• sell one or more of the Fund’s assets;
• raise new equity for the Fund;
• take on additional debt;
• conduct equity raisings; or
• undertake a combination of these measures.
Refer to the PDS for full terms on liquidity.
Centuria intends to pay monthly distributions and will be subject to the terms set out in the PDS.
The minimum investment in the Fund is $10,000. Centuria may accept investments that are less than this amount at its discretion.
All investments in unlisted property funds carry risk. As the Fund invests in commercial agriculture property it carries the market and property risks associated with investing in this sector, including climate and environmental risks. As a geared investment, the Fund also carries associated financial and leverage risks. Risks can impact on distribution and capital returns over the term of the Fund. It is important that you read the Product Disclosure Statement and understand the risks of investing.
Centuria acknowledges that agricultural properties are subject to additional risks when compared to other commercial real estate investments due to its exposure to environmental and climate factors. However, the group will seek to mitigate these risks as much as possible through the due diligence process when reviewing investment opportunities by identifying assets that feature protected cropping, access to water rights and a focus on sustainability.
