Our Services

Europe, Asia-Pacific & US

Our three global subscription services deliver city-level data and reporting using PMA’s proven methodologies, combined with coordinated strategic insight and economic scenarios. All aspects of our services are extensively supported by our experienced local teams.

Our Global Coverage

Our research focus is on the core investible commercial sectors of offices, logistics, and retail high streets and shopping centres. As alternative sectors are emerging we are adding these modules to our global service options.

For each sector our city coverage matches that of most core and core+ investors, including both capital and provincial cities across each region.

City-level Detail by Sector

Local market data is the foundation of all of our work, and city reports provide both comprehensive data and analysis to identify local trends and variations within each city. Each report is produced by the relevant local market expert, involving primary research and the best secondary sources through the utilisation of local market contacts.

City reporting covers individual unit analysis of different retail prime pitches, shopping centres and big box retail, and different office submarkets. Detailed development pipeline, occupier and investment schedules are also an integral part of the city reporting. Reflecting data availability and market fundamentals, logistics reporting is less granular but does include city level data on take-up, availability, completions, rents, yields and returns as well as national level schedules of key developments, lettings and investments.

Country Insights by Sector

Our Country Insights focus on explaining underlying assumptions behind our forecasts at a country level, how these may vary by city, and how potential structural changes may impact on each market.

These reports are updated twice a year, alongside the release of revised forecasts.

Regional Sector Overviews

The regional sector overviews, produced by the lead partner of each service, provide a bird’s-eye view of wider occupier and investment trends. These slideshows identify regional out- and under-performers, and explain how cyclical variations impact on their relative performance over time.

These reports are updated twice a year, alongside the release of revised forecasts.

Topic Papers

Through collaborative research by our analysts, and drawing upon extensive market data, we produce a series of Topic Papers on an ad-hoc basis to answer some of the biggest industry questions, from big macro themes to structural changes within the property industry.

Previous topics addressed include the flexible office boom; the rise of eCommerce and its impact on retail and logistics; Brexit; trade wars; secular stagnation; and the emergence of alternative sectors.

Strategy Meetings

A key element of PMA’s standard service is client support, including regular in-house strategy meetings. These are tailored to meet your needs at that time, whether focusing on certain sectors, cities, or themes. These meetings are led by the senior team member in charge of each service, and draw on local analysts where necessary to provide further insight.

For our European services we also have group presentations four times a year - twice in London, plus in Germany and France - where we present our latest forecasts to 100+ clients.

Our on-call enquiry service is the other key part of client support. Clients rely on our market experts to provide additional data and analysis to support specific requirements.

We are renowned for the speed and detail of our response.
