Have you heard of Alternative Investments?

Well traditionally when we speak about investments, people will tend to think about conventional investment option such as properties, stocks, futures, precious metal(Gold), bonds and Forex. That's what I usually thought so.

However my recent maiden visit to the Investor Expo 2010 held @ Kuala Lumpur, gives me a different perspective on variety of options available when it comes to investment. Read on to find out why.

What I'm about to share with you might not be totally new to you but it sure is new to me. The alternative investment in the form of liquid but mind you, it's not easy to liquidate when you are in need of cold hard cash.

This alternative investment option is actually Wine. Something most of us love to drink during special occasions or when there is something worth celebrating. I've been drinking wine for quite sometime now, most of the time during corporate functions, company events and sometimes with my acquaintances. I knew the rich and famous loves to drink and collect wine, in fact a lot of people buy wine as gifts these days, but little did I know that people actually invest in it and make a profit out of it.

If you are not from the ultra rich and elite Malaysian families, then this may probably be the first time you are reading about this because its still quite new to the Malaysian mass. So far the only company offering such investment option in Malaysia today is Premium Liquid Assets Sdn Bhd.

According to the company's website, it claims to be Asia's leading fine wine wholesaler with presents in Bordeaux(France), Malaysia, Singapore, China and Hong Kong. The company currently offers about 8 type of premium wines for investment, namely the Château Margaux 1986, Château Mouton Rothschild 1995, Château Haut Brion 1989, Château Margaux 1990, Château Mouton Rothschild 1995, Château La Mission Haut Brion 2000, Château Lafite Rothschild 2003, and Château Haut Brion 1989.

Each investment has to be made in a minimum and multiple of 12 bottles of 75cl(Centiliters) wine which is equivalent to 1 case. If you are wondering how much it cost for a minimum investment in ringgit and sens, here are some example; 1 case of Château Mouton Rothschild 1995 is about €4,600 or RM18,596.45 while 1 case of Château Haut Brion 1989 cost roughly € 15,280 or RM1 772.55(€ 1 = RM4.04). Yes it's quite pricey but definitely a good option to invest as a form of hedging against conventional investment options such as properties and stock which are much more volatile and sensitive toward economic and political development around the globe.

This is how the case of 12 bottle looks like.
