BENEFITS OF INVESTING IN THE WINE MARKET THROUGH WSF

Efficient Fine Wine Ecosystem

The Fund is embedded in an Efficient Fine Wine Ecosystem that offers various means of enhanced performance versus the market. These include
• The opportunity to purchase wines at the most favourable prices
• Strong insights about the provenance of the wines we handle
• A resale network that encourages positive price movements

Greater realisation of profits translates into superior liquidity and value for our investors

Wine Source Fund (WSF) benefits from a broader distribution network at the time of resale. This not only supports a higher turnover of our assets and the overall liquidity of the Fund, but also adds to our ability to re-deploy capital into new and attractive investment opportunities.

Our systems help us make wise investment decisions and promote transparent valuations

Our sourcing platform has been one of the pillars of our investment process in a market where sources of information are becoming increasingly complex despite investors who are looking for transparency.

A team of knowledgeable wine experts and experienced investment professionals

Investing in fine wine requires a deep understanding of the fine wine market and the trade, as well as experience in the fields of portfolio and risk management. Our team is well positioned in all aspects of this market.

INVESTMENT STRATEGY

Sourcing liquid assets for high capital appreciation

Wine Source Fund (WSF) targets superior returns by investing in wine with considerable aging – and therefore investment – potential. An awareness of the source, or ‘provenance’, of wines is paramount in securing assets of the highest quality and lies at the heart of our philosophy.

Superior diversification with niche exposure to Spirits

The Fund not only invests in the most established Old World wine regions of France and Italy, but also in prestigious winemaking regions in the New World including the United States and South Africa. The Fund is also focused on spirits such as Cognac and Whiskies, for the ultimate portfolio blend.

A regulated structure with rigorous risk management

The Fund operates within a controlled and secure regulatory environment. This helps us ensure the safety of the Fund’s assets and the peace of mind of our investors. Our service providers are the best in their categories and help ensure the Fund complies with the highest standards.
