Real Estate

North America and Europe

Investcorp is a leading global real estate investment manager. Since 1996, we have acquired more than 810 properties, totaling more than US $19 billion in value.

Based in New York and London, we currently have a portfolio of real estate assets in excess of US $6 billion (including leverage) in the US and Europe.¹ The US and European platforms remain very active, with new deal activity in excess of US $2 billion per annum.

We have a long-established history investing in real estate and driving value across market cycles with:

  • More than 250 investments realized
  • Average leadership team tenure of nearly 20 years
  • Average leadership industry experience of nearly 30 years

We consistently rank among the most active real estate buyers and sellers in the US and are actively growing our European presence. The US platform maintains a leading position with steadily increasing AUM. For the twelve months ending December 31, 2019, Investcorp was the second largest international buyer and fourth largest international seller of US real estate, according to Real Capital Analytics. Since launching our European Real Estate business in June 2017, we have grown our total European Real Estate AUM to approximately US $800 million.¹

Our strategic approach focuses on targeting core-plus and light-value-add real estate investments throughout the US and Europe that generate strong cash flows while providing upside potential for capital appreciation through light-value-add opportunities and active management.

Our portfolio includes:

  • Multifamily
  • Industrial / Logistics / Cold Storage
  • Student Housing
  • Office

Investcorp typically co-invests in all of its real estate offerings, underwriting every transaction using our own balance sheet to directly align our interests with investors. 

We seek to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns across cycles by acquiring assets in markets underpinned by solid economic fundamentals. We strive to enhance value across our portfolio through revenue enhancement, expense management, capital improvements and/or property repositioning and creative capital structuring.

We actively manage our real estate investments with a dedicated team of experienced asset managers focused on seeking to maximize distributions while preserving and enhancing property value.
