Bahrain-based Investcorp, in partnership with a subsidiary of Philadelphia-based Equus Capital Partners, has acquired 11 new US multifamily properties with a combined value near $370 million.
Madison Apartment Group, Equus’ management affiliate, will act as on-site property manager for the newly-acquired portfolio, the Bahraini private equity firm said in a statement on Monday.
“As one of the most active investors in U.S. multifamily real estate, our real estate investment business continues to be an important driver of our ambitious long-term global growth strategy on the path to $50 billion in assets under management (AUM),” Mohammed Alardhi, Investcorp’s executive chairman stated.
This transaction represents Investcorp’s largest acquisition in the US real estate portfolio over the past ten years.
“Each property offers strong existing occupancy levels and we believe also offers the opportunity for value-add renovations,” principal in Real Estate Investment at Investcorp Michael Moriarty said.
