UK - Schroder Property Investment Management has bought three properties worth a combined total of £50m.
The firm has acquired the Vicarage Field Shopping Centre in Barking, East London in a joint venture with Chester Properties’ second investment partnership fund for £40.6m. The shopping centre was acquired from Vicarage Fields Partnership, which is operated by HSBC Property Fund Management.

Schroders executive director Joe Froud said: “These three acquisitions illustrate the depth of opportunistic projects available to invest in.”
