Boston, MA, December 29, 2012 - Alternative Asset Analysis is endorsing comments from Schroders senior adviser Alan Brown, who claims that some of the finest wine labels are currently experiencing a period of depressed values and this is the time to snap them up.
AAA explains that although the wine investment sector has come under fire recently, after 30 per cent was knocked off some top labels’ values, this has left them more affordable. The alternative investment advocacy group, alongside Alan Brown, claims that taking a long term view of wine investment is the best way to make it work for you.
Mr Brown explained that the drop in the wine prices has reflected the drop in stock prices recorded last year. "Wine prices usually follow the equity markets though there may be some disconnect and differences at times," he explained.
AAA’s analysis partner Anthony Johnson, added that the popularity of alternative investments such as wine, art, antiques and precious metals have increased since the credit crunch hit. He explained, "After the economic collapse, investors started to look for a way of diversifying their portfolios against risk, and this is where alternative investments come in."
"Investing in something you love, like a hobby such as wine, means you will remain interested in the product you are investing in and are more likely to respond to the market in the best way."
Brown himself has a collection of over 3,000 bottles and he claims that money is still to be made from investing in the right wines and just keeping hold of them over time. He claims that cases of wine can lose value here an there but will often regain those values if investor take long-view.
AAA advocates investing in alternatives to diversify portfolios against risk and recommends forestry as an ethical and profitable option.
