Find out how Tristan Capital Partners works with LDC to enhance their understanding of retail occupancy and vacancy trends across the UK, identify suitable investment opportunities and to increase the ROI of their existing assets.
LDO enables you to overlay your assets and analyse their performance though our health index as well as benchmark funds and portfolios with national and sector historical trends.
LDO identifies competing centres and tracks how they are changing so you are aware when factors around you change which may be a risk or an opportunity.
LDO provides operational support through evidence based location insight as well as analysis of change over time of occupancy, vacancy, tenant mix and demographics.
Our Retailer Gap Analysis Report provides immediate information on which retailers are present/missing in competing centres, saving you the time and cost of travel and site visits.
Pre-Acquisition Due Diligence
LDO provides immediate and unique access to activity on the High Streets, Shopping Centres and Retail Parks across GB.
LDO delivers actionable insights, which will help you identify and assess the attractiveness of an asset (LDC Health Index) and compare it with nearby and competing locations. It also enables you to understand how an asset or location has changed since 2008.
Using LDO you can virtually visit over 3,000 high streets, shopping centres and retail parks that have been analysed in detail for you.
In addition we produce bespoke reports to identify the locations and assets that match your investment criteria based on characteristics such as:
– Size of centre/asset
– Health Index – current/historical
– Direction of travel – improving or declining
– Vacancy rate
– Persistent vacancy
– Presence of specific retailers
– Number of competitors
– Size of population catchment
The Local Data Company has a distinguished and distinctive position in chronicling, characterising and analysing the UK retail scene. As a leading player in the listed market for consumer equities in the UK, Shore Capital Markets finds LDC’s work to be an invaluable source of detailed analysis on the ever-changing British shopping landscape. It is an unparalleled resource.
NewRiver engaged with LDC to understand footfall at The Ridings Shopping Centre. The brief was to understand not only flows of people into/out of the centre but also around the scheme and across floors. NewRiver decided to use two footfall solutions simultaneously in order to test and compare the accuracy of LDC’s newly developed technology – the results were positive. NewRiver found the mobile device counting solution from LDC has created results which gives greater granularity into flows within the scheme but was also able to distinguish visitors during peak times better than the, now removed, previous solution. LDC is working to bespoke the data visualisation and reporting in line with specific requirements by NewRiver which will be used for board level reporting, marketing activities and investment decisions.
BlueGem worked with LDC on our diligence for Jack Wills, a premium British fashion brand. The work was done to a high standard, delivered on time and presented with clarity and extremely helpful insight, layered on top of excellent data. We will surely work with LDC again and we would recommend them to any of our peers.
As well as providing a comprehensive and unique data set that enables us to build a stronger understanding of the UK retail markets, LDC has a flexible approach in delivering to our requirements.
More and more occupiers need information based on facts about places and not opinions or predictions. This is where LDC helps us to approach them.
At NewRiver we are very research focused which is why we use LDC. We use research to support our acquisition programme, improving our asset management capability and maximising the potential in our development portfolio. LDC provide us with wide ranging data that is accurate and current. Moreover they are able to articulate that data to NewRiver in a relevant way. Research is important as it allows for better decision making and reduces risk which is why we wouldn't hesitate to recommend LDC.
Retail Performance Indicators
LDC does not just rely on the data it collects in the field but also overlays a growing number of datasets to ensure you have the best insight upon which to make decisions.
This dashboard displays the vacancy rate vs. the number of units located within a 200 metre radius around a target location or asset within a town or centre.
Average historical ‘Retail and Leisure’ vacancy combined for all High Streets, Shopping Centres and Retail Parks in which your store/selected fascia is present.
Persistent vacancy measures how long vacant units have been vacant for, by assessing the proportion of vacant units that have been vacant for a significant period of time
The mix of businesses in a location determines its attractiveness. Benchmark these variances to similar but better-balanced locations.
Independents v Multiples
The ratio between independents and multiples determines the character of a town. Finding the right balance is key to the success of a town or location.
Track proxy retailers (those retailers that are good to be nearby) and identify new opportunities based on previous experience and success.
Identify your competitors and see where they are opening or closing stores in and around your locations or even in locations where you have no presence.
