Vertu Motors partnering with Cap HPI to manage risk with used car stocks


Vertu Motors is working with Cap HPI to help manage risk and optimise profits in a volatile used car market which has seen prices fall nearly 8% since the start of October.
 
Cap HPI’s daily movement report provides dealership groups with a comprehensive view of the market offering extensive real-world trade and retail data from across the industry allowing users to review the market by sector, manufacturer, vehicle size and fuel type.
 
David Crane, chief operations officer at Vertu Motors, said: “At Vertu Motors, we continue to invest in the latest data and technology to drive efficiency throughout our operations. We have a long-standing relationship with Cap HPI, who work in partnership with us to ensure we have access to the latest market insight. We hope that the new daily movement report will be incredibly powerful in helping us spot adjustments we need to make to our valuations engine, and also helps to prompt the operational teams when we spot risks.”
 
Cap hpi recently issued a rare warning to the automotive industry to monitor used values as the market continues to undergo a readjustment. Used values during the first six days of November slipped another 1.5%, which follows the 4.2% drop reported in October.
 
Michaela Hill, managing consultant at Cap HPI Consulting, said: “The daily movement report presents a whole market view on used values in an easy-to-use dashboard that makes deriving insight easier than ever before. It provides cap live data down to the derivative level and is the most comprehensive view of the trade market available today.”
 
October marked the largest drop in a single month since the introduction of cap Live in 2012 and the biggest fall since May 2011, over 12 years ago.
