Building on our heritage
Since 1998, IFM Investors has invested over $2 billion in private equity in over 400 funds (and 2,700 underlying companies). We can identify deep sector experts and harness directly-relevant past investment experience by drawing on our global network. Our heritage underpins our long-term focus and our alignment with co-investors and other domain experts. We believe this makes us a strong investment partner for investee companies.
