Investcorp, a leading global provider and manager of alternative investment products, is pleased to announce the completion of its third UK Industrial and Logistics Programme (“UKIL III”) following its acquisition of a UK £16 million fulfilment centre in Leeds.

Since June 2017, Investcorp has acquired industrial and logistics assets in the UK with a value of in excess of £200 million, and with a combined area of approximately 2.8 million sq. ft across 28 assets.

We are continuing to work through an attractive pipeline of new investment opportunities in the UK and continental Europe. The continued growth of our European real estate portfolio is key to achieving our mission to serve investors worldwide with a diversified portfolio of attractive alternative investments.”
