  • Ireland Strategic Investment Fund (“ISIF”) has a mandate to invest on a commercial basis whilst supporting economic impact and employment in Ireland. ISIF has c€9bn of assets under management, completes investments across all sectors of the economy and has flexibility in how it invests – including debt, equity, hybrid and fund based investments. ISIF can take a long term and flexible approach to its investments – underpinned at all times by robust commercial and risk/return analysis.

    Housing Infrastructure Services Company (“HISCo”) is a Joint Venture between ISIF and Cork County Council. HISCo provides a ‘design-build-finance’ service for housing estate infrastructure, on fully commercial terms, to developers and landowners. Such services include roads, footpaths, cycle lanes, water and wastewater facilities, (mains and connections), amenity areas, utilities, public lighting, etc.

    In addition to on-site infrastructure, HISCo also provide solutions to associated off-site infrastructure deficits e.g. Waste Water Treatment Plants, Roundabouts, Link Roads, etc.

    The unique element of the business model is that HISCo will recover its investment in the infrastructure via an infrastructure fee deducted from the proceeds of the sale, or first letting, of each housing unit. Further background information on this new venture can found at www.hisco.ie

    In this CPD session, senior representatives from ISIF and HISCo will explain the mandates and strategies of each business and how their respective activities can support commercial investment in sectors, regions and projects which otherwise may not materialise.
