New leadership for IRAPT Fund

We’re thrilled to announce two key promotions within the ISPT Retail Australia Property Trust (IRAPT).

Kate Mathewson has been appointed IRAPT’s Fund Manager, overseeing investment strategy, capital deployment, investor engagement and growth of the Fund. Kate joined ISPT in 2016 as National Portfolio Manager, Retail Services and she brings 30 years of industry and leadership experience to the role.

Simon Baird has been appointed IRAPT’s Deputy Fund Manager, a newly established position due the Fund’s increasing scale. Simon joined ISPT as Fund Analyst for IRAPT in 2018 and brings ten years’ experience within the finance and property industries.

Kate says

“The IRAPT Fund will continue to focus on its growth strategy in the neighbourhood good and services retail space, responding to the needs of our local communities. Both myself and Simon look forward to continuing our close working relationship with IRAPT Investors to ensure we deliver strong, stable returns for the Fund.”

Kate and Simon are well known to ISPT’s Investors, partners and team and we congratulate them on their new roles.
