Industry Funds Management (IFM) will partner with the Asset Management Council (AMC) to deliver superior risk management and business outcomes for its clients.

The partnership will promote a sophisticated and comprehensive approach to asset management, drawing on the experience, expertise and offering of each organisation.

As the largest infrastructure investor in Australia, and one of the largest globally, IFM brings a unique understanding of the long term, sustainable management of infrastructure assets drawing on its 17 year investment track record.

IFM's Investment Director, Infrastructure, Danny Elia will join the AMC board. Mr Elia has responsibility for IFM's asset management strategy across its 26 global infrastructure assets.

"Best practice asset management is an absolute priority for IFM, which is why this partnership makes sense," Mr Elia said.

Kyle Mangini, Global Head of Infrastructure, leads IFM’s global Infrastructure team.

"IFM aims to generate excellent long-term returns through efficient and effective management of infrastructure. This partnership reconfirms our commitment to that process," Mr Mangini said.

The partnership agreement with AMC will run for five years.

IFM invests in core infrastructure assets for leading pension and other long term institutional investors in Australia, North America and Europe.
