The investment managers said it had bought 20 high street assets in German cities.

The assets, known as the Sidewalk portfolio, will be held by a Spezialfonds managed by HansaInvest Hanseatische Investment and set up for a north German pension fund in 2010.

AEW said the portfolio is in prime retail locations of large and medium-sized cities. The 60,000 sqm portfolio also includes retail parks in Bavaria and Baden-Wurttemberg.

Isabelle Rossignol, head of retail, said AEW Europe was looking to grow its existing €9bn retail portfolio and strengthen its position in the German market.
