Fine wine is an alternative investment class that is increasing in popularity, and has become accessible to all types of investors. On today’s show, we are joined by Atul Tiwari, CEO of Cult Wines, America to discuss the merits and risks of this ‘passion’ asset.
Atul’s investment and fine wine background speaks for itself. Before building Cult Wines Americas, he was employee number one at Vanguard Canada where helped pioneer ETF investing in Canada and grew the company from $3 to $30 billion in assets over 7.5 years. Prior to Vanguard, he held progressively senior positions at BMO Financial including senior vice president of BMO Asset Management.
In addition to his personal interest in wine, Atul has also managed a 4000-bottle cellar of fine Burgundy for the Toronto Chapter of the Confrerie des Chevaliers du Tastevin over a five-year period.
