Introducing IFM Investors
Owned by pension funds. Inspired by their members. IFM Investors is a global institutional asset manager driven to make a positive difference. Our purpose is to invest, protect and grow the long-term retirement savings of working people.
We aim to deliver superior long-term net performance through quality investments across four asset classes – infrastructure, debt, listed equities and private equity.
Established more than 25 years ago by a group of Australian pension funds, IFM Investors has €131 billion under management as at 30 June 2023. We prioritise the interests of 650+ like-minded investors worldwide who aim to build a real and lasting impact by focusing on assets that combine excellent long-term risk/reward characteristics with broad economic, environmental and social benefits to the community.
As a responsible long-term investor IFM actively engages with the companies in which we invest on issues we care about, with the aim of improving their net performance while minimising investment risk.
Operating globally from 11 offices, you can find us in Melbourne, Sydney, London, Berlin, Zurich, Amsterdam, New York, Hong Kong, Seoul, Tokyo and Milan.

IFM Investors is a pioneer and leader in global infrastructure investment. We manage critical infrastructure assets that generate wide-ranging social and economic benefits to communities across the world.
Well-managed infrastructure assets can provide long-term institutional investors with benefits, including portfolio diversification, earnings stability, participation in economic growth, protection from inflation and portfolio risk management. We invest patiently and strategically, with a focus on creating and building long-term value.
We have committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions across our asset classes, targeting net zero by 2050. As part of this commitment, IFM Investors itself aims to become a net zero organisation. Further, we have set an ambitious 2030 interim emissions reduction target for our Infrastructure portfolio as part of our commitment to target net zero by 2050
IFM Investors adheres to the following key investment beliefs:
- Patient and strategic approach to investment management
- Long-term investment time horizon
- Rigorous and consistent approach to due diligence and valuation
- Optimisation of net investment outcomes for investors
- Competitive fee structures and appropriate alignment of incentives
- Focus on responsible investment.
A key differentiator for IFM Investors is the philosophical alignment of our firm with the interests of investors. Our priority to maximise net investor returns closely aligns us with the objectives of our owners, many of which are also our clients and invest with us on behalf of their members. This allows new clients to invest alongside like-minded investors.
