How we invest

We invest on a commercial basis to support economic activity and employment in Ireland

We are seeking to invest in transactions where we can make a difference, where the Fund’s 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.

The overarching purpose of the Fund is to invest “on a commercial basis in a manner designed to support economic activity and employment in the State”. This unique mandate reflects a shift from being a Sovereign Wealth Fund focussed solely on wealth creation, to a Sovereign Development Fund with a “Double Bottom Line” objective. In other words, our success will be measured by both investment returns and economic impact achieved.
