IFM Investors was established in 1994 for the purpose of protecting and growing the retirement savings of our investors’ beneficiaries, who are millions of pension fund members globally. We are owned by 27 superannuation funds, which means we’re highly aligned with our investors’ interests.
We invest across four asset classes: infrastructure, debt, listed equities and private equity.
Long-term stewardship of our assets is fundamental to our role. We recognise that a responsible investment approach, encompassing respect for the environment, a commitment to a strong and inclusive society and good governance practices will help to maximise long-term returns for members. At the same time, this approach will benefit communities, the environment and the broader economy.
IFM Investors has been an active private equity investor in Australia and offshore since 1998. We have evolved from an investor in private equity funds to be a direct investor in companies. Since 2016, IFM Investors has built a dedicated direct private equity investment capability, led by experienced senior private practitioners with extensive direct private equity investment experience from high performing managers.
Today we manage over A$ 165 billion* across all four asset classes, making us one of the largest managers in Australia.
With offices located in London, New York, Berlin, Hong Kong, Seoul, Tokyo, Sydney and the head-office in Melbourne, Australia, IFM Investors has one singular purpose – the prosperity of investors and their members.
GIIA is the membership body for the world's leading institutional investors. On their behalf, we work with governments and other stakeholders to boost the role of private investment in providing infrastructure that improves national, regional and local economies.
