UK Cities & Partners agrees partnership with EvaluateLocate

UK Cities & Partners (UKCAP) – the alliance which promotes major property investment opportunities in key locations across the country – has agreed a partnership with the groundbreaking economic vitality index, EvaluateLocate, to provide data perspectives for its UK Investment Prospectus.

The prospectus is at the forefront of supporting UK city regions in collectively promoting major capital investment propositions to international markets.

Supported by the UK Government and the British Property Federation, its strategic partners include Invest Manchester, Invest Newcastle, Opportunity London, Invest Bristol+Bath, and West Midlands Growth Company, plus major investors and advisers including Avison Young, Aviva Capital Partners, Aviva Investors, Clifford Chance and Legal & General Investment Management.
EvaluateLocate is a spatial intelligence app which brings comparability and consistency to ranking the economic vitality and identity of every UK location. Its vitality index is a ground-breaking analytical tool which encompasses economic and demographic metrics such as business density, earnings, residential values, population profile and employment.

Jon Lister, co-Director of UKCAP commented: “Our UK Investment Prospectus showcases a £50bn pipeline of opportunities to unlock large-scale investment partnerships for our city regions and major project promoters. The ability of EvaluateLocate to track economic vitality and bring detailed data insights into what is powering the economies in specific UK locations will play a significant role in helping investors understand the characteristics of the UK”.

As part of the partnership, UKCAP will also become a Development Partner for the EvaluateLocate online subscription portal which is due to launch shortly.
EvaluateLocate Director, Adam Kirby, commented: “UKCAP is a powerful and growing alliance of city regions and we’re very excited by the prospect of bringing data clarity to what these diverse economies provide.

“The UK is a major destination for global capital but without ‘local knowledge’, international investors want detailed data analysis to fully understand the economic setting of investment opportunities.”
