The IDLF typically appeals to foreign investors applying for the IIP who seek a low-risk, highly regulated and reputable investment option. The Fund is structured as a Qualifying Investor Alternative Investment Fund (QIAIF).

IDLF applicants are typically families, with the primary applicant being an accomplished business professional who travels internationally quite frequently, while their spouse resides in-country. Their children are typically of a school going age, however in most cases investors’ objectives include their children attending an Irish university or tertiary institution in future, given that Ireland’s higher and tertiary learning institutions rank among the best in the world.

These children will be eligible for an application for naturalization and citizenship, without any language requirement. In addition, they’ll have access to a booming commercial environment and technology sector, with over 1,300 of the world’s biggest multinational companies being headquartered in Ireland. Some of these companies include Facebook, Microsoft, Apple and LinkedIn, to name but a few.
