 October Wine Investment Insights –

During this financial and health crisis, safe investment opportunities were tricky, if not impossible to find. As the Financial Times and Liv-Ex wrote this month, wine has been a safe placement value, with Liv-Ex 100 index rising 1.3% this year compared to the S&P 500 dropping significantly.

The value of the pound dropping by more than 5% can also be a positive indicator for wine investments stored in British warehouses as foreign buyers will be more interested to buy from UK stock.

Liv-Ex also suggests that new wine regions, such as the US Napa Valley , Champagne and Italian gems on the rise, bear great investment opportunities.

If you are looking to invest in wine or need advice on selling your portfolio, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our Senior Portfolio Manager, Rostislav Petrov.
