How we define resilient retail

As the leading UK retail real estate company we understand what makes a resilient retail asset and we know how to protect and enhance resilience over the longer term.

As part of the refinement of our strategy in 2021 we identified ten key characteristics of resilient retail assets, based on our significant retail real estate experience and proprietary data sources.

These characteristics, ranging from location, online compatibility and rental affordability to asset management intensity can be quantitatively measured to form an assessment of an asset’s long-term resilience, guiding our acquisition screening and ultimately our capital allocation decisions. By focusing on the fundamentals we are confident we will deliver stable income, capital growth and premium total accounting returns.

Recognising that not every resilient asset will necessarily score well on each metric, this data-led approach forms just one part of our investment and asset management toolkit. 

Our holistic approach also draws on sector experience, a best-in-class operating platform, strong stakeholder relationships and robust financials.
