About IFM Investors
IFM Investors was established more than 25 years ago by not-for-profit Australian pension funds, in partnership with the Australian trade union movement, with the aim of protecting and growing the long-term retirement savings of 120 million working people around the world, including caregivers, teachers, construction workers and hospitality workers.
IFM Investors is one of the largest global infrastructure investment managers with more than €61 billion (as at 30 June 2022) invested across a range of infrastructure assets.
Throughout the past 8 years as a major shareholder of Vienna International Airport, IFM has proven to be a reliable and trustworthy investor and partner. During this time, we have dependably supported the strategy and the work of the management and have provided advice based on our international expertise.
We have significant experience in working alongside municipalities and public entities as manager or advisor in investments across 17 different airports in Australia, the United Kingdom, Austria, Malta, Slovakia and Latin America
We believe investing for the long-term means addressing climate change risk, ensuring constructive labour relations, building diverse and inclusive workplaces and meeting the expectations of the communities where we invest. We champion these ideals by actively engaging with the companies in which we invest and we believe this enhances their productive capacity, net performance and market reputation, while minimising long-term investment risk.
Our commitment to sustainability
To continue delivering on our purpose to protect and grow the long-term retirement savings of working people, we believe it is vital that we have a plan to mitigate the risks of climate change.
