Cavex Update & Stock Offer Highlights

With a second full week of trading under our belts, and the bold move by Mouton Rothschild in releasing their 2012 at the start of the Bordeaux campaign, its been quite an exciting week. Time will tell if Mouton made the right move in stamping some authority on how the 2012 campaign should pan out. The low release price certainly kicked started some interest. It therefore seemed rather poignant that the first case of Bordeaux First Growth to be traded on the Cavex platform was a case of Mouton Rothschild 2000 at £9300 IB.

The bids and offers continue to grow with a great range of wines live on the platform. Members are loading up their portfolios confidently and its great to see the support building strongly from contacts old and new. We thought we would take the opportunity to list some of the current statistics and our stock highlights where we are placed at the end of week two;

  • Total value of member portfolios – £5.5 million
  • Total value of current live offers – £600,000 with 742 cases for sale
  • Total value of live bids – £150,000 with 155 cases looking to be purchased
  • Average price of a case sold – £1450 IB (12 x 75cl)
Our highlights this week are from the current live offers on the platform. Remember that these prices include In Bond delivery to a UK bonded warehouse or can be collected for export directly and can be bid against at any time.

The Portfolio Management Partnership

More than ever, keeping a handle on what’s in your portfolio, its provenance, and its value is crucial to maintaining the integrity of your investment wines in-bond. Easy if you have a handful of cases and time on your hands. Not so easy if your collection is significant or you aim to invest more.

This is the reason we are launching our Portfolio Management Partnership service. Working with a trusted partner with over 30 years of experience in the fine wine business, this service will help you manage your portfolio, guide you on future investments, allow you to trade in only topflight investment wines and most importantly offer you access to one of the most secure wine storage services available to date.
