Wine & Spirits Investment Report July 2023

Uncorking Opportunities: A Look at Wine Investment Trends in June 2023.

Dear Investor,

I hope this message finds you well.

Interest Rates
The Federal Reserve has been on a steady path of tightening monetary policy, raising interest rates 10 times since June 2022. The current Federal Funds Rate stands at 5.00% to 5.25% in the USA, a level not seen since 2006.

It is essential to bear in mind that fine wine continues to prove itself as a resilient and valuable asset class.

Currency and Job Market
The US dollar has seen appreciation against most major currencies over the last year, increasing roughly 10%. In tandem, jobless claims have spiked, reaching their highest level since late 2022. This is likely due to the increased implementation of AI technologies and automation, as companies continue to streamline their workforce. The potential long-term implications for the global economy warrant attention.

Housing Market
In the next five years, the US housing market is predicted to experience a slowdown, with prices either flat or experiencing a modest decline.

Diversification of Investments
In light of these shifting dynamics, investor sentiment appears to be veering towards alternative investments such as fine wine. Investors are increasingly identifying the potential of wine as a store of wealth and a tool to diversify their portfolios. Wine investments have shown a strong performance during periods of economic uncertainty, demonstrating their long-term value stability.

Cryptocurrencies and Precious Metals
Cryptocurrencies and precious metals continue to captivate attention, albeit they bring a distinct set of risks. Cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, have a reputation for volatility. Bitcoin prices recently surged over $30,000. Gold prices have also experienced considerable volatility that represents a 7% decline over the last year.

Fine Wine Investments
Given the current market landscape, fine wine remains a compelling choice for investors looking for stability and long-term growth. It’s a tangible asset that offers intrinsic value and boasts a strong history of delivering returns, as evident from your portfolio.

Global Stimulus Packages
Notably, governments worldwide have pumped an estimated $12 trillion into their economies over the last five years via stimulus packages. While these measures aim to stimulate growth, they also contributed to massive inflation. Fine wine investors continue to benefit from inflation as prices are expected to continue rising.

Fine wine remains an attractive option, helping preserve capital, providing diversification, and serving as a store of wealth.

We are offering a monthly wine investors plan, with plans to include a credit card option, whereby you can invest a token amount each month until there is a sufficient amount to invest in a case of wine. Complete this form for further details:
