LDC’s Health Index is a valuable tool that enables investors and asset managers to understand and track attractiveness and sustainability of assets over time. As a business you could build a company owned index which can be applied to over 3,000 GB locations through the LDO platform, including town centres, shopping centres and retail parks. The ability to bespoke the health index allows for accurate assessment of investment/divestment opportunities in line company specific views and criteria.
The Health Index is assessed and updated on an ongoing basis (6 or 12 months) which allows investors to track continuous performance as well as understand risks and opportunities as they arise. Finally, the bespoke health index capability enables you to benchmark your portfolio against sector averages, competing centres or a set of centres e.g. Top 100 Shopping Centres. This capability is often used to feed in external investment reporting.
