About us

We are leaders in Australian agriculture investment and asset management.

Compass, established in Australia in 2013 by Nigel Pannett and his New Zealand business partner, Guy Blundell, with an initial focus on private consulting and succession planning. Six months later we had identified, purchased and were developing and managing our first agricultural assets in Tasmania.

From these roots, Compass has evolved into managing agri assets across the country and working with a broad spectrum of large scale corporate and private agricultural clients.

Dedicated Team

Based in Tasmania and Victoria, our dedicated and experienced team include agribusiness specialists, accountants, and human resources professionals.


By drawing on our collective knowledge, network and experience, we pride ourselves on our ability to bridge the gap between the practical on-farm challenges of farming and the financial, business and commercial aspects, and matching the right wholesale investors with the right Australian agricultural investment.


Every asset we manage has our dedication and focus on meeting our ESG commitment around our people and communities, the land and water and our animals.

  • Nigel's knowledge and expertise, and the way in which he guided discussions and made everyone feel comfortable, was crucial to the positive outcome that we had. Furthermore, Nigel gave us the confidence and guidance we needed to turn that succession planning into reality, by delegating tasks to each member of the family and checking in with us to make sure we had followed through.
