AIPUT - an overview

  • AIPUT (Airport Industrial Property Unit Trust) is a specialist semi-open ended Jersey Property Unit Trust for expert institutional investors, established for over 19 years.
  • We invest in aviation-related industrial property and land on and near the key UK airports, attracting international businesses of all sizes.
  • Today, our portfolio with a value of £0.7 billion* provides over 2.4 million square feet (sq ft) of high-quality industrial distribution warehouse accommodation at the three leading London international airports Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted. This specific focus recognises the long term value and growth that should flow from London as the world’s largest metropolitan aviation market.
