Blog: Chris Brook-CarterWine Folk - Put yer money where yer mouth is

Chris Brook-Carter | 24 January 2005

As our financial world crashes around our ears, with interest rates rising and pensions nose-diving, news reaches us here at just-drinks that the answer may actually lie at the bottom of a bottle.

Premier Cru Fine Wine Investments Ltd has launched its own Independent Financial Advisor (IFA) Consultancy division. The European Fine Wine investment house, hopes to exploit the Fine Wine investment market as an opportunity for high growth investment returns and is dedicated to helping IFAs achieve solid returns for their clients.

Premier Cru’s IFA Consultancy division offers IFAs full training as well as the ability to service accounts - with a dedicated sales manager per account.
 
“Fine Wine benefits from being stable, tax-free, easily realisable, consumable, low risk and portable,” Premier Cru says. “Above all else, due to decreasing availability, there is increasing demand. Fine Wine has consistently outperformed all other forms of recognised investment. It has remained the steadiest form of investment, as it is generally unaffected by recession, interest rate changes and stock market fluctuations.”

Stacey Golding, investments director of Premier Cru, elaborated: “People do not like to discuss their pension premiums amongst friends around the dinner table, but they do like to talk about the value of their wine.”
