IFM invests in both new structures and existing properties that offer attractive risk-opportunity profiles. In this way the Company creates potential "landmarks" that it keeps in its portfolio for an extended period to generate rental income, before selling them. Another target is properties the Company can invest in as special opportunities. These properties are intended for sale shortly after the necessary work has been performed. In deciding on an investment and identifying suitable properties, IFM systematically applies its years of experience and established networks in the regional real estate markets.
