Since 1988 the fine wine market has generated average returns of 12.4% p.a. The fine wine market has outperformed almost every market including the FTSE 100 consistently for the past 25 years, making it a far less risky investment. The wine market simply works on a supply and demand basis of economics, meaning that as long as the demand for the worlds best wine is there, prices will continue to appreciate.
With the recent pandemic and global economic uncertainty, the low volatility and steady returns is what makes this market so appealing during times of need. With uncertainty at the forefront of everyone’s mind, investors are turning to safe, tangible assets in order to hedge their risk. With consumption of wine at an all time high, it is the perfect time to step in to this alternative investment class.
