indexes Liv-Ex 100 and 500 (London International Vintners Exchange) have been created in the mid-nineties and quoted by Bloomberg (LIVX100).
The indices are composed of a basket of 100 and 500 labels listed in a “after market”, that is a secondary market quite significant in the medium / long term since their issue (30-50 years). The composition of the index focuses on the major production areas such as the Châteaux Bordeaux (Pomerol & Cru Classés) and to a lesser extent to production of Burgundy (Grand Crus), Rhone, Champagne, Tuscany & Piedmont.
It ‘s interesting to note that since their creation, the indices Liv-Ex have had average annual performance of 15% and more, systematically beating all the indices of traditional financial markets and even the evolution of ”safe havens” like gold and real estate market. This shows that investing in fine wines is not only useful to the satisfaction of the palate but also your wallet.
