There are many good things to say about investing in wine, especially when compared to other investment products typically available to investors. For one thing it can give fantastic yields of up to 30% a year, and has also out performed the stock market for three decades.
Wine is good as both a short term investment (one year) and long term investment (5 years) and is hedged by the fact that it is always in demand with an ever diminishing supply.
Wine is less volatile than the stock market, and is backed by a real non speculative market to be sold onto which helps keep the prices from massive fluctuations.
Wine is a tangible asset that you own, which can give you grater security to that of money invested into a fund, which may end up being used as working capital.
Unlike other investments wine has a low barrier to entry and is suitable for investors from a wide range of financial status.
Unlike stocks and shares you don’t need to be an expert to make money with investing in wine, if you choose the right merchant they should be able to give you all the advice you need to get the right portfolio up and running.
No capital gains tax in the UK, in England wine is considered as a wasting asset and is except from paying capital gains tax on the profits of your investment.
Freedom to sell when ever you like, it is fairly easy to sell on and cash in your wine investment which gives you a level of liquidity that may be lacking from other investment opportunities.
