In 2003, the IPF raised over £700,000 to support a three-year research programme which has secured cross-industry support. The programme was the product of a joint initiative between the IPF and the IPF Educational Trust, both contributing £75,000 each to the programme.
The core programme funding came from 16 leading organisations and businesses from across the UK property industry. Each committed £36,000 for the three-year term.
The programme provided the UK property investment market with the ability to deliver substantial, objective, and high quality analysis on a structured basis. This enables the whole industry to engage with the other financial markets, wider business community and government on a range of complementary issues. The work was continued through the IPF Research Programme 2006 - 2009.
