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 Health Index essentially allows you to benchmark over 3,000 locations against a health index with 12 data inputs (catchment, spend, occupiers and vacancy rates) that correlates results to Large, Medium and Small high streets, Shopping Centres and Retail Parks.
It has been proven to be a robust proxy for location health and shows key trends over time and has been developed in partnership with Morgan Stanley.
You can also bespoke the index to your specific business criteria and quickly analyse how your stores score and whether their locations are strengthening, stable or weakening.
Once you have selected an asset in your portfolio/fund you can view all competing centres within a 10, 20, 30 minute drive time or by distance (kilometres).
You also have the ability to switch between Town Centres, Shopping Centres, Retail Parks or view them all.
With the Location Overview you can gain an instant understanding of the in town and out of town offer.
The information included in this dashboard shows you the hierarchy of places, the scale of retail, classification mix, quality of retail offer, demographics (and more) and how it is changing over time.
The tabs at the top offer further insight to trends and patterns over time.
Quickly identify drive time catchments from a location by up to 10, 20 or 30 minutes drive time. You can also see where your other stores lie within these catchments, as well as the stores of your competitors or proxies.
The interactive map functionality brings the data to life and gives context to it. Here you can understand the relative importance of competing locations, clearly see clusters, identify prime pitch or see vacancy hot-spots.
It is also possible to filter, zoom in or export any of the data you see on the map.
Our ‘bespoke boundaries’ tool also allows you to create bespoke areas for analysis.
