Jordan established Transcendent Investment Management in 2008 to lay the foundation for his vision of 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 Kavana

Chief Executive Officer

Transcendent Investment Management

After further developing his proprietary ERP solution, TIAS ResiPro ™, Jordan formed the firm’s vertically-integrated Build US Back® line of companies as its operating platform to research, select, acquire, renovate, rent and, at the right time, resell properties in-house; becoming the subject of a 2014 Harvard Business School case study entitled, "Build U.S. Back: Opportunities in the U.S. housing market."


Prior to launching Transcendent, Jordan successfully formed and grew an international high-tech toy company in Hong Kong and China, which he sold in 2003 to return to the U.S. and co-found JL Real Ventures, a private equity fund that assembled a portfolio of multi-family properties in the Southeastern United States.


Jordan earned his 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, which oversees $127.8 billion in total assets and currently serves on the Advisory Board for Aviator Capital Management, a full service commercial passenger aircraft leasing and management firm based in Miami, Florida.


Most recently, Jordan received inclusion into Latin Trade’s TOP 100 Most Powerful Businesspeople listing of 2017.
