The ANREV Australia Farmland Index is the first quarterly index in the history of Australian agriculture which provides the returns of institutional grade farmland assets on both an income and capital growth basis. With the aim of promoting agriculture investment as an investable asset class, the Index brings transparency to the Australian farmland performance.
The data is drawn from institutional grade farmland management investments which are externally audited with independent valuations at a minimum of every three years. Data of each farmland is provided on a quarterly basis which details the income and capital movements.
Set up in 2015 by NCREIF, the Index uses the same methodology as that used for the U.S. Farmland Index launched in 1990, with minor adaptions to accommodate some differences in Australian agriculture. The Index has been handed over to ANREV in 2020 and is published 10 weeks after each quarter end.
