Retailer health check: who will be next after Joules?
Great to see our tenant default analysis feature in a recent piece by React News.
With an increasingly challenging economic backdrop, the ability to deliver a consistent income stream will drive the bulk of returns in all developed markets. Therefore, understanding the quality and duration of that cashflow, and being able to express it in % terms, becomes critical.
Using outdated financial accounts to try and forecast a future outcome is fundamentally flawed. Instead, you must be using predictive, real-time measures and continually remarking your risk levels as conditions change. This requires a vast amount of data points to be processed, but could be the all important difference in meeting or missing targeted returns.

Q2 2023 Income Analytics T200 reports

Q1 2023 Income Analytics T200 reports
June 20th 2023, London. The latest T200 reports from Income Analytics (INCANS) shows the UK hospitality tenants continuing to be the best improvers, albeit from a low base after the pandemic. However, their European counterparts have not shown as much improvement. European pubs & restaurant scores have remained static over the last 12-months.

Motor dealerships, a representation of larger discretionary spending, has seen tenant scores (and therefore the likelihood of default) fall across all three regions.

UK CRE investment markets go "income only" as yield gap over bonds disappear
Since 2008, commercial real estate has enjoyed an unprecedented bull run in terms of capital value growth. That charge is now over. Today’s economic realities mean that the returns from real estate investments are likely to be “income only” for the foreseeable future. Under such conditions investors need to shift their attention to the quality and duration of their rental cashflows.
Logistics tenants are under pressure while retail woes continue
Businesses in the logistics sector are the highest risk tenants, while those in healthcare and education present the lowest risk. These are the findings of the INCANS Top 200 Averages for Q2 2022.

Driving with the rearview mirror: CRE needs a new roadmap for recession risks
Navigating the post-pandemic economy is turning out to be hard. Ahead are hidden hazards, sharp corners and unpredictable oncoming traffic. UK inflation rose to 9.1% in May, according to data released today. In the U.S. it is 8.5%, both at 40 year highs and both expected to grow. Energy prices are soaring, and growth on both sides of the Atlantic is doubtful: U.S. first-quarter growth was 0.1% whilst UK GDP fell by 0.3% in April.
