Investcorp announces acquisition of 8 multifamily properties for $330mln in the U.S.

Bahrain: Investcorp, a leading global provider and manager of alternative investment products, today announced that its U.S.-based Real Estate Investment team acquired eight new multifamily properties. The portfolio includes 2,510 units for a total purchase price of $330 million. The properties span the submarkets of five rapidly growing metro areas across the Southeast and Southwest states: North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Arizona and Texas.

“Since inception, Investcorp has been one of the most active foreign investors in U.S. real estate. These acquisitions are consistent with the Firm’s strategy to invest in high-quality properties with a promising outlook in key U.S. cities,” said Hazem Ben-Gacem, Co-Chief Executive Officer of Investcorp. “We are bullish on the U.S. property market and are eager to scope out more opportunities like these in the coming period, to build on our successful track record to date.”  

All the properties within this portfolio are “garden style” Class B apartment communities in locations where Investcorp has demonstrated an ability to create value and believes there are strong market dynamics.

Timothy Mattar, Head of Placement & Relationship Management at Investcorp, said: “The U.S. real estate sector remains an attractive market for Investcorp and a highly demanded asset class for clients looking for more predictable cash flow. The acquisition of these eight properties builds on the period of strong activity for our real estate team.”
