LDC supports the commercial due diligence of retail and leisure companies across GB. Through our live data system (LDO) we provide investors with a view on the retail and demographics environment around each unit. Our proprietary analytics system overlays demand and supply data from drive time populations, wealth, house prices to competitors/proxies, vacant units and the proximity of competing locations to enable a 360 view.
Furthermore, in partnership with Morgan Stanley, we have developed a Health Index, comprised of 12 key KPIs that impact the attractiveness of locations and provide a comparative view on the health of the estate and retail pitches scoring low or high. Through the ongoing visits LDC provides a unique dynamic view on how those places are changing year on year.
Through the physical verification of over 500,000 operators across 400 business classifications we provide a top down view on sectors be it nationally, regionally or on a location level.
Depending on specific requirements, our dynamics dashboards provide a quick or an in-depth view on sector growth/decline, top players and location strategy highlighting structural changes investors should be aware of.
Property is one of the largest costs to any occupier. So, it is critical to make the right decision at the right time. LDC provides information helping investors and property directors to benchmark potential locations with existing ones.
Through LDC’s coverage of 3,000 locations nationwide we can quickly verify expansion pipeline, as well as identify new locations that are in line with your requirements for a successful retail pitch. We support decisions based on evidence rather than gut-feeling alone!
Through physical updates of over 500,000 businesses in 7,000 locations (GB), LDC supports buy and sell side investors with actionable insights on a market, location and company level.
We support the analysis of portfolios or retail and leisure companies as well REITs with exposure to UK commercial real estate.
Analysis is based on key parameters such as health, direction of travel, change over time, occupancy and vacancy, socio economic profiling and drive time population analysis.
