The real estate investment trust (REIT) intends to use the proceeds from the disposal to fund acquisitions better aligned with its stated investment strategy.

"Despite a good location within the town let to a strong tenant, we anticipate minimal opportunities for future rental growth and believe the disposal proceeds can be redeployed on property with better income and capital growth prospects," said Richard Shepherd-Cross, the managing director of Custodian Capital, which is the REIT's external fund manager.

Shares in Custodian were unchanged in early deals.
