The Ireland Strategic Investment Fund, managed and controlled by the National Treasury Management Agency (NTMA), is an €8.9 billion sovereign development fund with a unique mandate. We have a statutory mandate to invest on a commercial basis in a manner designed to support economic activity and employment in Ireland. The fund’s predecessor was the National Pensions Reserve Fund (NPRF).
With €8.9 billion available to deploy, the Fund differs from other pools of capital in a number of key respects. It has a long investment time horizon and therefore can act as a permanent or patient source of long-term capital. It has flexibility up and down the capital structure and can therefore meet changing capital needs and gaps in the marketplace.
The Fund will seek to invest in transactions where it can make a difference, where its characteristics can enable commercial investment transactions with positive economic impact and can make it an attractive “investor of choice” for company and project sponsors and advisors.
We are a strategic investor with strong connections in both the public and private sectors. We are uniquely positioned to make connections and drive innovation across multiple industry players developing and delivering innovative opportunities that might otherwise go unrealised.
