SOME OF THE LIV-EX INDICES ON WHICH WE TRADE:
• LVX 50: The Liv-Ex Fine Wine 50 Index tracks the daily price movement of the most heavily traded commodities in the fine wine market – the ten most recent vintages (excluding En Primeur, currently 2002-2011) of the Bordeaux First Growths.
• LVX 100: Declared the “fine wine industry’s leading benchmark” by Reuters, the Liv-Ex Fine Wine 100 Index represents the price movement of 100 of the most sought-after fine wines for which there is a strong secondary market. The index is calculated monthly.
• LVX BDX 500: The Liv-Ex Bordeaux 500 is Liv-ex’s most comprehensive index and reflects trends in the wider fine wine market. It represents the price movement of 500 leading wines and is calculated monthly using the Liv-Ex Mid Price.
• LVX INV: The Liv-Ex Fine Wine Investables Index tracks the most “investable” wines in the market — around 200 wines from 24 top Bordeaux chateaux. In essence, it aims to mirror the performance of a typical wine investment portfolio. The index data starts from 1988, further back than any other Liv-Ex index.
