Fine Grain Property is a successful international real estate investor and operator. Investing in Singapore and Ireland, Fine Grain seeks to breathe new life into overlooked or underinvested commercial properties and land, through selective acquisitions and end user-focused repositioning or development strategies. With an established team on the ground in Ireland, Fine Grain is building a portfolio of industrial, logistics, and business park properties, focused on creating workspaces for the many employers who are choosing Ireland as their base in Europe.
The Irish economy remains as the fastest growing economy in the European Union. The country has enviable demographics, with a young, well-educated population and the highest birth rate in Western Europe. As such, Ireland is a key location for foreign direct investment, serving as the European Headquarters of choice for over 1,000 giants in information and communications technology, social media, pharmaceuticals and financial services.
Fine Grain is committed to providing spaces across Ireland to facilitate the employment growth which is surging in the country. To this end, Fine Grain works closely with Irish Government bodies such as IDA Ireland and Enterprise Ireland which are government bodies responsible for foreign direct investment and supporting the growth of Irish businesses, along with Ireland’s sovereign development fund, ISIF, who has invested with Fine Grain in the firm’s Irish investments.
