  • Ireland is experiencing a significant shortage in housing supply, due in part by the retreat of the banks from traditional lending markets, disrupting financing flows – particularly for smaller development projects. There is a significant opportunity for non-bank lenders, such as Initiative Ireland to deploy funds into smaller developments, which benefit from shorter loan terms and yet offer significant un-subordinated collateral.
  • By focusing on lower-cost housing, the Fund aims to provide stock where demand is considered greatest and where demand is sustainable.


  • Davy specialises in the provision of investment management services to 3rd party managers for real estate investment funds and has over €4Bn of assets under management as at 30 September 2018. Further information on Davy is available within the prospectus.
  • Initiative Ireland is an established secured property finance provider, led by an experienced management team, experienced in the provision of Banking and Alternative Finance products within the market as outlined in the prospectus.

  • The Fund shall retain preemptive rights to fund 75% of each loan financed and an opportunity to further optimise returns through loan syndication, earning an underwriting premium on all loans it funds.
