Strategy

One focus. One goal. Creating value

We have a clear strategy to own and develop high quality industrial property at and around the highly concentrated economic zone of the UK’s major airports over the life of the Trust to 2036.

Why?

International airports, generally speaking, are extraordinarily busy hubs that generate incredible economic activity, prosperity, and jobs that is beneficial for the immediate surrounding business communities, and for the domestic economy. However airports are highly sensitive and regulated environments, and most operations are time-critical with a distinct focus towards high-value express air-cargo (for example, e-commerce/parcels, perishables, pharmaceuticals, technology, aerospace) on top of supporting millions of passengers. With tight planning and regulatory regime at and around airports to protect the safe, secure, and control of the working environment, operators seek extra efficiency and flexibility to compete. As such, airport-related occupier demand is highly focused and specialised, whereas supply is limited, or even shrinking which can create competitive tension in the marketplace.

To capture this growth, we operate with a tightly focused investment strategy and low-risk approach. At this time, our focus is on durable income. Our strategic portfolio is virtually fully occupied and income producing, which helps deliver consistent and sustainable investor returns in this relatively low growth environment.

Our portfolio holds a balance between properties with potential to add value through regeneration or repositioning, and those which can continue to grow value and income through implementing our specialist asset management skills.

As airports are highly focused and specialist marketplaces, we actively look to diversify the characteristics of the property portfolio, in particular the durability and security of income, and the occupier base. This helps to manage portfolio risk over the long term.

AIPUT is pursuing a strategy of growing the Trust and its business through new acquisitions and development to supplement the organic growth of the existing portfolio.
