Peakside Capital sells a portfolio of three Polish outlet centres to Deutsche Asset Management and is appointed as the portfolio, centre and asset manager
Deutsche Asset Management (Deutsche AM) today announced that it has acquired the Fashion
House Portfolio in Poland which consists of three shopping outlets located in Warsaw, Gdansk

Deutsche AM’s German funds.
The portfolio comprises over 50,000 square meters of retail space, with over 210 different tenants
including Nike, Adidas, Puma and 4F, offering a balanced and attractive combination of national
and international, high-street retailers and luxury brands. Built mostly in 2005, the outlets feature
unique themed architecture and substantial car parking facilities, and benefit from prominent
positions within their cities, with excellent accessibility and visibility.
In addition, Deutsche AM has appointed PRÔM as the portfolio centre and asset manager.
PRÔM is a joint venture of Peakside Capital and ROS Retail Outlet Shopping.

potential and we are delighted to remain involved through our joint venture, PRÔM, supporting
business continuity,” said Stefan Aumann, Partner, Peakside Capital.

while providing defensive investment exposure to the evolving retail sector,” said Georg Allendorf,

centres enjoy strong recognition in the Polish market and we look forward to working with our
newly appointed centre managers PRÔM to further strengthen the position of this portfolio.”

work on a shared vision for the portfolio,” said Thomas Reichenauer, Managing Director, PRÔM.
He added, “Continued success of the outlets will be sustained by strengthening our excellent
relationships with brand partners and stakeholders, whilst constantly curating attractive offerings
