Adventure Agricultural Capital Fund

As an Agri Impact Venture Capital Fund, Eridanus provides the opportunity for investors to get involved in the exciting agricultural sector.

How it works

Eridanus invests in the agricultural sector using financial instruments in the form of structured debt and equity funding. The entities that are invested in are carefully chosen by our investment committee, with low risk and high income being the main considerations.

In addition, Eridanus partners with a wide range of industry experts who investigate and become involved in potential and qualifying investment projects. This ensures that suitable shareholding, financial control and management oversight are obtained in order to minimise risk and maximise returns for investors.

Investors pay no management fees, unit trust fees or upfront capital raising fees. You are exposed to lucrative agricultural opportunities and are offered preferential investment when limited, lucrative opportunities arise.

Your returns

As a new investor you will receive a preferential dividend of 10% after tax, payable monthly or accumulated monthly. Investment by Eridanus also ensures liquidity and enables us to offer investors a 90 day notice period without penalty.

Investment Opportunities

Eridanus make available to investors the opportunity to form part of tangible investments in lucrative low risk farming entities. The investments are made in a broad spectrum of farming operations concentrating mainly on grain and cattle farming under irrigation. Eridanus believe that the ever increasing demand in food supply and the scarcity thereof will continue to ensure highly profitable investments.
