IPF Research Programme 2011-2015

The IPF Research Programme has developed a reputation for delivering high quality, rigorous and independent research focusing on issues relevant to the market. We are delighted to announce the IPF has been able to secure a further £1.1 million of funding to support its 2011-2015 programme, making it one of the biggest UK-based funds to focus specifically on property investment.

The objectives of the Research Programme support those of the IPF in enhancing the understanding and efficiency of property as an investment, including public, private, equity, debt and synthetic exposure, for its members and other interested parties.  All our research aims to support these objectives.  We commission and publish three different types of work:

Major research reports - these tend to focus on key issues for the market such as risk, liquidity, depreciation and sustainability. Full and summary reports are published.

Short Papers - these focus on specific issues the market is dealing with at a point in time.  A single paper is published.

Regular publications - these currently include:

  • the UK Consensus Forecast (quarterly)
  • the European Consensus Forecast (6-monthly)
  • Lending Intentions survey (annual)
  • Residential Investment survey (annual)

For more information on the above areas of work, please see the right hand menu.

A full report and summary report are normally produced for each of our major research projects.

All reports are held in the Research Archive. Full reports are available for downloading free of charge by IPF members. Members will need to log in to access all full reports.  Summary reports and Short Papers can be downloaded free by non-members.
