Since its inception, the value of Investcorp’s real estate investments has totalled over $18bn across more than 800 properties.

Investcorp, who counts Mubadala Investment Company as its biggest shareholder, revealed in August last year that its net profit rose 5 per cent to $131m, and fee income climbed 17 per cent.

However, in February this year, it reported a 17 per cent drop in H1 FY20 net profit, reporting a net income of $48m compared to $58m for H1 FY19.

The firm’s assets under management increased by $3bn to $31.1bn during the same period.

Commenting on the South Florida property acquisition, Yusef Al Yusef, head of Gulf Institutional Clients Group at Investcorp, said, “The purchase of these properties in the attractive South Florida market aligns with our defined investment strategy of targeting strong cash flow generating assets that we believe are positioned to generate consistent returns while providing upside potential.”
