Orchard Street Investment Management has bought and leased by Altrincham, Gosforth, Nantwich, Leicester, Huntingdon, Braintree, Woking and Osterley.
WGC has signed 25 year leases on the centres. Orchard Street bought them on behalf of St James's Place Wealth Management.
Wyevale has had a strategy of buying centres outright and will complete on at least one new centre at the end of January. However, this change in strategy raises £91m for owner Terra Firma and could be followed by further sale and leasebacks.
WGC now has more than 150 centres.
