Jordan Kavana is Founder & CEO of Transcendent Investment Management, a diversified private equity firm with over $500 million in assets under management. After forming, growing and exiting a high-tech toy company in Hong Kong and China, Jordan launched JL Real Ventures, a private equity fund that assembled a portfolio of multi-family properties in the Southeastern United States. Jordan later established Transcendent Investment Management in 2008 to lay the foundation for a data-driven real estate investment platform in the single family residential space to capitalize on what he saw as clear opportunities created by the distressed U.S. real estate market of the time. Jordan earned a B.A. in Hospitality Management and Finance from Florida International University, pursued graduate-level studies in real estate finance at Harvard University and is a graduate of Harvard Business School’s OPM program. He served as a trustee on the Florida State Pension Plan Board and currently serves on the Advisory Board for Aviator Capital Management. Jordan attributes many of his opportunities to growing up in a family and community that was extremely supportive and entrepreneurial.
