BENEFITS OF INVESTING IN THE WINE MARKET THROUGH WSF

Efficient Wine Source Ecosystem

The Fund is embedded in an Efficient Fine Wine Ecosystem that ensures multiple layers of extra performance vs the market.

  • Purchase at most favourable price
  • Strong insights about the provenance
  • The resale network allows positive price movements

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

Wine Source Fund 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 for both wise investment decision and transparent valuation

Our sourcing platform has been one of the pillar of our investment process in a market where sources of information are getting increasingly more complex and where investors are looking for transparency.

A team of knowledgeable wine experts and experienced investment professionals

Wine investing requires a deep understanding of the fine wine market and the trade as well as experience in the fields of portfolio and risk management. We believe our team is very well positioned in all aspects.

INVESTMENT STRATEGY

Sourcing liquid assets for high capital appreciation

Wine Source Fund targets superior returns by investing in physical bottled wine with great aging – and financial – potential. The source or ‘provenance’ of wines is paramout 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 wines from the New World such as 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 very controlled and secured regulatory environment. This is for the safety of the Fund’s assets and the peace of mind of our investors. Our service providers are best-in-class and help ensure the Fund complies with the highest standards.
