All of the properties are also in what the company describes as “desirable neighbourhoods” with close proximity to major transportation and employment hubs.

The number of properties owned by Investcorp in the US now totals more than 14,000 units.

Discussing the recent investment, Investcorp Real Estate product specialist Khulood Ebrahim said: “We are excited to further enhance our significant multifamily real estate footprint in the US with these stable, highly-occupied properties in key suburban areas. Our latest acquisitions are consistent with our defined investment approach and build upon our long history of investing in US multifamily real estate.”
