The IFM difference

  • A unique ownership model and long term approach
    IFM is owned by 30 Australian pension funds and was established to provide superior, cost effective funds management. This ownership structure philosophically aligns the interests of our owners and all our investors.
  • Single minded focus on investor returns
    We are a leading provider of investment services to institutional investors, delivering superior long term performance through quality portfolios with a strong risk focus.
  • A global team of experts
    Our team offers wide specialisation and expertise with people based in Australia, North America and Europe, giving us a strong global perspective.
  • Innovative product and service
    We bring a clear point of difference to our investors via the portfolios we design and manage, and our service platform.
  • A strong focus on Responsible Investment and ESG issues
    Our focus on responsible investment is borne of the belief that adherence to environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles leads to better long-term investment outcomes. ESG is embedded across our investment processes. We are actively committed to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).

We value the privileged position we are given by our clients and shareholders to invest money on behalf of their members, and we are strongly committed to the retirement savings of hard working people.
