    The National Pensions Reserve Fund (NPRF) of Ireland has become the Ireland Strategic Investment Fund (ISIF), facilitating a redeployment of NPRF resources on a commercial basis to areas of productive investment in the Irish economy in order to support economic activity and employment.

    The ISIF is valued at €7 billion, and is available to invest in Ireland as suitable investment opportunities arise and are developed. The dual objective mandate of the ISIF – investment return and economic impact – represents a new approach to investing and will require all investments to generate both investment returns and economic impact in Ireland.

    The fund will have the flexibility to make investments across the capital structure of companies and projects, both debt and equity, and across a range of investment types and sectors.
