Frequently Asked Questions

What is the IDLF?

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.

Why is investing in a fund a better option than investing directly into a property development?

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.

Why is being a regulated fund important and what does it mean to me, the investor?

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.

How has the fund deployed its capital so far and how has Covid impacted the fund performance?

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.
