IO is a market-leading independent Real Estate Investment Management business specialising in the UK Industrial sector.
IO has a proven track record of implementing successful joint venture programmes, targeting attractive income-led, risk-adjusted returns, in partnership with institutional investors, wealth managers, private equity investors and family offices.
Established in 1986, IO originally formed a series of successful JVs with Partners such as the National Coal Board Pension Fund, LaSalle Investment Management and PRICOA Property Investment Management (now Rockspring).
In 2012, IO, with the backing of Grosvenor, launched a joint venture vehicle to take advantage of the recovering property market. Following the success of this programme, IO has established a series of follow-on vehicles.
IO’s most recent vehicles are a £120m core plus/value add joint venture investment vehicle between Grosvenor and Quilvest, and a long term joint venture vehicle between Bradford Estates and IO (BIO) that seeks ‘core’ income driven returns for its investors.
