Join the IPF

Membership of the IPF is on an individual basis. We do not currently offer corporate memberships. To join the Investment Property Forum it is necessary to have a proven background in the property investment field. Whilst all applications are carefully considered on their individual merits, as a guide we normally expect applicants to have a minimum of three years' professional (post-graduate) experience with at least two in property investment and/or finance. It is likely that you will be in a fairly senior position within your organisation.

There are also a number of university masters level investment/finance courses that we recognise as providing the relevant skills necessary for those operating in the property investment market. The successful completion of one of these provides fast-track membership, providing that the applicant has two years of relevant professional experience. To see the courses where this applies, click here.


  • Join in active debate with other senior professionals working in the same market.
  • Gain full access to our Research Programme and topical publications including our market surveys.
