The Irish Diaspora Loan Fund (IDLF) is a senior secured debt fund that is regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland. IDLF provides overseas individuals with investment opportunities in Ireland. We were the first Investment Fund that was established exclusively for the purpose of the Irish Immigrant Investor Programme (IIP). The IIP was created by the Irish Government to facilitate non-EEA nationals and their families in securing residency status in Ireland.
The Immigrant Investor Programme, or IIP, is a scheme created by the Irish Government in 2012. The IPP was set up to help non-EEA nationals and their families secure residency status in Ireland through investment. Minimum investment is required to be considered eligible for the programme. You can find out more about the IIP scheme here. For more information, contact us here.
Best place to start is to fill out the application form as much as you can, and we can then advise further on what is needed. Also applying for your police report, as this can take time in some jurisdictions.
A fund is required to not invest all its assets into any one project. In IDLF’s case, it cannot invest any more than 25% of the total assets of the fund into any one project. This means that the risk is spread for an investor as they are not investing all their capital into a single project. Furthermore, a fund is regulated to ensure that investment decisions are made by regulated professionals who are experts in the market. This ensures robust, conservative decision making.
Investing in a regulated fund ensures that the fund is structured and governed to the very highest international standards. Investors have very clear rights, such as full transparency on fees etc., and the directors of the fund cannot make any changes to the fund without full shareholder approval. A fund therefore provides a professional, transparent and highly secure option for an investor. This is typically not the case when investing into a private company.
The fund has fulfilled its mandate to provide supportive senior debt to Irish businesses in the hotel and nursing home sectors. All the businesses supported by IDLF have performed exceptionally well, despite the challenges of Covid, and a couple have had their most profitable years ever in the last two years. None of the IDLF loans are impaired or underperforming.
