AN ALTERNATIVE ASSET
The Whisky Cask Club is jumping on the whisky investment bandwagon as it announced the launch of Asia’s first
Whisky Cask Fund which looks to create opportunities for investors to invest in whole casks of rare Scotch whisky. The fund stands out as it is the only one of its kind to be regulated by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and, for investing in casks only, not bottles. Alexander Knight, CEO and co-founder of Whisky Cask Club says whisky funds are attracting a return of 10 to 15 percent per annum. “While other funds focus on whisky bottles, our Whisky Cask Fund increases investors’ chances of profits on the sale of their assets since casks continually appreciate over time and are highly sought-after by large whisky labels,” he says. The casks will be stored in fully insured, secure and bonded warehouses in Scotland where investors can visit the facilities. Minimum investment sum is set at US$50,000 (available to accredited investors who meet the requirements set out by MAS). For more information, visit whiskycaskfund.com.
