Why we invest in agriculture
Achieving scale and diversification
Looking across countries, climatic regions, commodity types and target markets, our team of agriculture specialists selectively acquires and actively manages prime farmland to create sustainable large scale, diversified farming enterprises to feed a growing population.
Today, Macquarie Asset Management and its managed funds responsibly invest in and operate 4.7 million hectares of farmland – producing red meat, grains and oil seeds.
Part of the community
We understand that farmland is best managed by people on the ground, not overseen from afar.
That’s why we invest in people – working in partnership with experienced farm management teams located at each property to understand their crops and livestock, their weather conditions and local markets.
Employing more than 450 people in rural communities, we equip our farming businesses with best practice land management techniques, technology and infrastructure to improve quality and yield, whilst reducing their environmental impact.
Focused on the future
