Land Securities Group
Our strategy is simple: we manage our Retail Portfolio and London Portfolio businesses through the property market’s cycles, adjusting key investment and development activities ahead of changing conditions to maximise return and minimise risk. In property investment, we add value through active management of assets and the timing of acquisitions and disposals. In development, we create the right product at the right point in the cycle while keeping a tight focus on cost and timing.
The Group's Board of Directors directs strategy. It also monitors the balance sheet and financial performance to ensure capital is allocated appropriately – both across the two businesses and between investment and development activity. Each business benefits from the Group's ability to provide operating efficiencies, debt and other shared resources.
Retail Portfolio Strategy
We work to spot, unlock and maximise the potential of shopping centres and retail parks throughout the UK. We look for opportunities to move assets up the retail hierarchy through proactive asset management improvements such as refurbishment and reconfiguration. And we look for opportunities to develop new retail locations and urban regeneration projects, with a focus on mixed-use destinations with the potential to perform well over the long term.
Our aim is to be the provider and partner of choice for retailers and local authorities. We want to be recognised as a market leader in terms of customer focus, design and innovation.
London Portfolio Strategy
We operate in a cyclical market and take early, decisive action on the timing and scope of key portfolio decisions. We increase the return on our development activities by clustering assets in key areas, so our work to create or enhance a new asset increases the attraction and value of our other assets nearby.
Using our knowledge, understanding and scale, we develop and invest to create high quality space for world-class businesses and brands. The spaces we provide enable organisations to enhance their performance and improve day-to-day life for employees, shoppers and local residents.
