FSP understands retailers and retail environments, be they shopping centres, retail parks, outlet centres or high streets. Our experience covers in and out-of-town; full-price and outlet; UK and Europe.  Outside of the traditional shopping environments, we can provide information and recommendations on any commercial spaces where retail and F&B exist or are anticipated e.g. universities, garden centres, hospitals and station concourses. 

EXPLORE THE SECTORS WE WORK WITH

  • Much retail planning focuses on 'capacity' and floor space issues. What FSP do is to provide a commercial 'reality check' of 'demand' based on actual market analysis and the socio-economic composition of the catchment which then needs to be considered alongside 'theoretical' capacity figures. This provides an added dimension when considering and understanding development proposals and one that tends to be overlooked by many planning and property professionals

  • Aviva investors have successfully worked with FSP for some time.  We see research  as being a key component of active asset management and FSP provide Aviva Investors with a first class, comprehensive service which is tailored to suit our specific requirements.

  • We wanted to confirm the growth opportunity that we believed to exist at DOS. FSP is highly regarded in the sector and understands outlet centres from the ground up – just the independent view we needed. FSP’s research confirmed the scale of untapped potential at DOS and gave us confidence in completing the acquisition. Having purchased DOS, we are now actively engaged in delivering the full potential of this exciting investment.

  • We needed a clear understanding of St. Enoch’s retail performance as well as an overview of both the macro and micro issues influencing shopper behaviours in Glasgow. Accuracy, speed and depth of detail were paramount and we knew FSP was the team to deliver this. FSP’s detailed research helped us to fully assess the opportunity from an investment perspective
