Industrial and warehouse fund AIPUT has teamed up with UK Property Forums. 

AIPUT, a fund managed by Aberdeen Standard Investments, will be one of the growing number of Valley Voices with Thames Tap and will join the panel of London Views, our expert team of sponsors for our London West newsletter. 

Nick Smith, fund manager for AIPUT, will be the face of the fund.

He said: “As fund manager for AIPUT, I am delighted to be working with Matthew and the team at the UK Property Forums at this crucial time for the Thames Valley economy.  

“AIPUT (Airport Industrial Property Unit Trust) is a specialist Aberdeen Standard Investments fund, with a portfolio of around 2.1 million sq ft of UK airport industrial real estate, the bulk of which serves the air freight and logistics needs of Heathrow Airport.  

“Our 19 locations on or close to the airport, include Blackthorne Point on the Poyle Trading Estate immediately to the west of Heathrow, where we will shortly begin construction of a new high-spec warehouse building.  

“As we emerge into the new post-Brexit trading environment, the West London/Thames Valley economy will need to compete harder and smarter to continue to attract the high-value investment and growth for which it has deservedly become known.  

“AIPUT is very much looking forward to working with our business partners and stakeholders, local authorities and communities in meeting that challenge head on to deliver future growth in investment and job creation.”
