Building on our heritage
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.
We seek to identify attractive investment opportunities, focus due diligence processes by drawing on sector expertise from our global network, and harness directly relevant past investment experience to drive positive investment outcomes.
The strategic goal of IFM Investors Private Equity is to support the growth of Australian and New Zealand private companies.
Our firm and team espouse a culture of achieving alignment with key stakeholders in investee companies. These stakeholders include founders, management, employees and customers. We then work in partnership with these stakeholders to drive value. We offer investees a flexible investment time horizon to support growth of companies over the optimal period. We have no artificial driver to exit, and are able to invest either as a majority owner or as an active, supportive minority investor.
IFM Investors’ Private Equity senior team members have extensive experience investing in and supporting growth businesses across a range of industries and geographies. This experience has been gained over the past 25 years, and demonstrates a proven track record of working with investee companies to achieve growth and realise value. In transaction processes, our team’s experience allows prompt decision making, efficient due diligence processes and effective execution.
