Investcorp, a leading global alternative investment firm, today announced the appointment of Jerry Davis as an Advisory Director within its Real Estate group, effective January 2022.
Jerry is the former President of UDR, a leading $26 billion multifamily REIT and S&P 500 company that he had been with since 1989. Jerry spent 31 years at UDR in a variety of operational and financial roles.
As Investcorp’s real estate team continues to grow its investment platform and expand institutional investor relationships, it has added several executives to its advisory team in recent months. Jerry joins fellow Advisory Directors Michelle Felman and Patrice Derrington, appointed in October 2021, as well as Mark Patterson. The group’s extensive industry experience will help support strategic initiatives and capital raising.
“Jerry brings over 30 years of industry experience to Investcorp, and specifically within the residential sector which is a key focus area for us,” said Michael O’Brien, Co-Head of Real Estate North America at Investcorp. “We are excited to have him join our experienced group of Advisory Directors.
“I look forward to joining the talented team at Investcorp and to be a part of its continued growth in real estate. The firm has been one of the longest investors in US real estate and has a demonstrated strategy and track record that speaks for itself,” added Jerry.
Since 1996, Investcorp has acquired over 1,100 properties for a total value of approximately $23 billion. According to Real Capital Analytics, Investcorp is among the top-10 largest cross-border buyers and sellers of US real estate over the past three full years of 2019, 2020 and 2021.
