Global Wine Investments customers come from all walks of life. In the past few years, more and more private investors have decided to invest at least some of their funds in wine. Prior to this only the very rich or investment houses tended to trade in wine.
Why More People are Investing with Global Wine Investments
People are better informed about financial products than they once were. The public now read about alternative investment vehicles such as wine in the press and on the web. At first, they were cautious, but as traditional investment vehicles started to fail them they decided to take the plunge and invest in some of these alternatives including wine.
Consumers were made aware that in the past 30 years wine has outperformed more traditional commodities, including oil and gold. With the right portfolio, it is possible to make up to 40%, with the average return in the past 5 years for most genuine fine wines running at around 25%. The fact that all profit is tax-free means that investing in wine is hard to beat especially given the poor performance of the stock market and savings accounts, in recent years.
Investing with Global Wine Investments is Easy
The other reason so many private individuals are now investing in wine is that it is now much easier to do so. In the past, if you bought wine you had to take delivery of that wine and store it properly. To keep its value and grow in value wine has to be carefully stored. This meant investing in a proper wine cellar. Therefore, getting started with wine investing required a significant initial investment. It was hard for consumers to dip their toe in the water and see what happened. They had to commit money and space to start investing.
Global Wine Investments realised that this was an obstacle. So, from the start they decided to offer to store and manage their client's wine on their behalf. They realised that not all clients would want to take advantage of all aspects of their service, so they decided to tailor the service they offered to meet each customers' individual needs.
