2013 Offers Great Wine Investment Opportunities, Claims AAA
Although 2012 was a mixed year in terms of returns for wine investors, 2013 is set to be a great year to buy up fine wines as an alternative investment, according to AAA.
Boston (I-Newswire) January 25, 2013 - Although 2012 was a mixed year in terms of returns for wine investors, 2013 is set to be a great year to buy up fine wines as an alternative investment, according to Alternative Asset Analysis (AAA).
The problems in 2012 partly stemmed from the poor harvests in 2011, but confidence was also down thanks to some serious losses and even some sham investment funds, which damaged wine investment’s reputation somewhat. However, AAA points out that the creation of the Wine Investment Association (WIA) will help restore confidence in the sector.
“Now, anyone looking to put their cash into some fine wines can look out for the WIA mark when choosing a wine fund to invest through,” stated AAA’s analysis partner, Anthony Johnson.
Experts claim that the ‘market correction’ that took place last year should, if history is to repeat itself, produce a year of growth in the market. An article on the topic by Peter Shakeshaft, writing in the Huffington Post, stated that several wines are now underpriced compared with their values 18 months ago, which could mean there are strong gains to be had if the right wines are chosen.
He underlines the fact that the lower prices offer ‘serious value’ to those interested in diversifying their portfolio with alternative investments. AAA supports many kinds of alternative investments, with emphasis on ethical, social enterprises and schemes that can benefit communities and the environment. Among the asset classes it supports is timberland and/or forestry investments, providing it is sustainable.
“Investing in sustainable forestry and timberland projects is a great way to see healthy returns while minimizing risk. It also allows you to maximize returns without putting cash into ethically questionable funds or projects,“ added Mr Johnson.
AAA endorses forestry investment through firms like Greenwood Management, which operates sustainable plantations in Brazil and Canada.
