Will Hamilton discusses our outlook in first article of the year for The Australian.
For our first 2021 Webinar of the Fund Manager series Kane Baranow hosted Cullen Gunn and Angus Ingram from Kilter Rural, to discuss the Kilter Rural Farmland Investments Fund.
The webinar was held on Thursday 25th of February.
CEO and Executive Director
Since the late 1980s Cullen has dedicated his working life to advancing sustainable farmland, water and ecosystem management in Australia. Long-term exposure to the investment needs of Australian landscapes prompted a desire to attract institutional-scaled investment in sustainably managed landscapes.
He is a director of Accounting for Nature, a not-for-profit company with a vision to be a recognised global leader for measuring changes in the health of the environment. Cullen is a founding director of Kilter Rural and has been overseeing the existing investment portfolios since 2006.
Manager Agricultural Investments

Prior to joining Kilter Rural in May 2018, Angus spent three years developing and overseeing four irrigated dairy properties in Tasmania on behalf of private investors. Angus is the portfolio manager for Kilter’s Australian Farmlands Fund.
