AIPUT partners with Datscha for high-quality commercial property data
LONDON – Aberdeen Standard Investments’ AIPUT fund (Airport Industrial Property Unit Trust) is an award-winning long-term specialist investor in industrial property on or near major UK airports. The fund has recently formed an exciting new partnership with Real Capital Analytics company, Datscha, a web-based solution providing fast, easy access to high quality data for all registered commercial properties in England and Wales.
Celebrating its 16-year anniversary earlier this year, AIPUT manages a prime £650m, 2.3m sq.ft. portfolio of properties, delivering high-quality and customised warehouse and logistics space. Datscha will enable AIPUT’s Fund Manager, Nick Smith, and his team to conduct their own due diligence for specific fund assets and identify where current and potential prospects are located, with access to the full details of each lease.
Seeking to drive growth and competitiveness in the UK aviation real estate market, Datscha’s comprehensive and easy to use platform will offer AIPUT complete control and access to all the datasets available in the market, ensuring the fund stays ahead of its competition.
Commenting on the partnership, Nick Smith, Fund Manager at AIPUT stated: “Working with Datscha forms a new part of our strategic goal to improve decision making efficiency, helping us to make better, quicker and more accurate decisions for our customers and investors. This partnership provides a fantastic opportunity for AIPUT to utilise the data to source and secure new opportunities in the highly competitive airport-related industrial market. Having access to real time data including planning applications, site ownership, property search details and previous transactions all in one place will be a great asset for the fund. It is another critical tool in our predictive analytics armoury, which will enable us to release greater value beyond the real estate for our stakeholders.”
