The Mall Fund
The Mall Fund owns and operates shopping centres in England using the trading name "The Mall Company". The shopping centres are usually branded as "The Mall".
The Mall Fund owned up to 10% of the UK's covered retail space making it the largest portfolio of branded shopping centres in the UK before some of its sites were sold off. The Fund is managed by a team of 62 from Capital & Regional's Mall Corporation.
The Fund was formed in March 2002 by Capital & Regional and Aviva Investors. New investors have come in as the portfolio has expanded, and a secondary market for the units has developed. The fund now has 45 investors, including three overseas institutions.
Centres owned by the company include:
- The Mall Blackburn, Blackburn
- The Mall Camberley, Camberley
- The Mall Luton, Luton
- The Mall Maidstone, Maidstone
- The Mall Walthamstow, Walthamstow
- The Mall Wood Green, Wood Green
The Mall Fund has disposed of some of its centres, usually by selling the premises on to another operator or holding company. In many cases the centre will cease to use "The Mall" name and brand, and will often switch back to its previous (pre-Mall) identity. The Mall Fund's most recent disposals were its shopping centres in Sutton Coldfield and Uxbridge, which were sold in July 2013.
