Asset Management Strategy
In increasingly competitive markets, it is now not enough to simply let the market cycle do the work. To stay ahead of the game, investors need to "sweat" their assets ie actively manage them (particularly in retail and mixed-use) to differentiate them from the competition and increase profitability.
dqdx provides strategy consulting at the early stages of the project to ensure assets are developed ab initio with the aim of financially outperforming the competition.
Although our role is fundamentally economically oriented, we believe design is intrinsic to delivering value. We therefore work closely with the project managers, the architects and the operational asset management team to identify the projects' sources of differentiation and ensure these are maximised in (inter alia) the choice of retail/tenant mix, site design/layout and branding/corporate identity.
