Corporate overview 

We are the largest owner of offices and logistics assets in Dublin and are a long-term investor with a 50-year track record in real estate. We own and manage a portfolio comprising over 5.3m sqft, with a value of over €3bn.

Our principal objective is to drive long-term shareholder returns by investing in prime properties in Dublin which have core income or value-added potential. We have paid over €870m in dividends over the past decade and now distribute in excess of €100m a year to shareholders.

By certifying our buildings against industry-leading environmental efficiency, digital connectivity and sustainability benchmarks, we set the standard in Irish real estate. Our ‘IPUT Building’ brand, where we own and manage our assets, marks us out as the real estate provider of choice and attracts high-quality occupiers to our portfolio.

As a generational investor, responsible investing is in our nature. Our long-term outlook guides us as stewards of our neighbourhoods and means we are committed to creating places that endure economically and socially.

Located in Dublin, our team of 35 extend across the core business lines of asset management, investment, strategy and performance reporting, development, finance and marketing.

Investment principles & strategy

Our investment strategy aligns with our philosophy to create exceptional buildings that deliver long-term shareholder value, enhance the occupier experience, and contribute positively to the future shape of our city.

  • We consistently provide investors with stable returns and aim to outperform the institutional property benchmark.
  • We maintain and promote the competitive cost advantage of IPUT as an internally managed property fund.
  • We focus on maximising returns from the core income portfolio and add value through active management and managed development.
  • Continue to grow our investment in prime Dublin office buildings and logistics.
  • As a responsible investor, all new office developments are built to LEED credentials. We are a signatory to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment, we participate in GRESB and have made a commitment to achieve net-zero carbon (operationally) by 2030.
  • While IPUT is a core income fund, we carry out development and repositioning of assets to grow our income and prime the portfolio, aligned with our net-zero carbon commitments.
