Key investment wines have delivered double-digit growth in just one month throughout 2020 showing that some investors are achieving dynamic growth over a very short period. On trend fine wine has produced stable growth during 2020, when financial markets have been extremely volatile and companies and pensions have seen catastrophic impact on value. Liv-ex reports 2.6% growth across the year to the 30th September for the key Liv-ex 100 benchmark, compared to FTSE’s -21.6% nose-dive.
Fine wine is currently demonstrating its ability to de-risk a portfolio by hedging volatile markets and providing protection and stable growth during economic uncertainty. But some individual wines are delivering stella performance and values that have increased significantly and more dynamically over an incredibly short-term one month period. Some of Liv-ex’s top short-term market movers from across the year are listed below.
