Introducing YFSOL Classic & Special Opportunities

You Asked for Them—We're Giving Them


Based on the feedback from our recent yacht crew survey, we have created two new investment classes so that you can invest in what you find exciting.
 
YFSOL Classic Opportunities (YCOs) allow you to invest in luxury goods that have a long history of increasing in value: wine, art, classic cars, coins, stamps, etc. These are opportunities of distinction. THE FIRST ONE LAUNCHES TODAY: FINE WINE—READ ON.
 
YFSOL Special Opportunities (YSOs) allow you to invest in cutting-edge projects: crypto-currencies, high-tech solutions, legal marijuana, etc. These are opportunities of our time. The kind of investments your average financial planner wouldn’t think of.

How YFSOL Classic and Special Opportunities Work


You can invest in a new Classic or Special Opportunity every quarter. Each opportunity will only be open for a limited time. The minimum investment will be £10,000 per opportunity for existing Polaris clients and £25,000 for new Polaris clients. There is no upper limit, and you can invest in as many as you wish.

Some of these opportunities will be for a fixed time (ie. your money will be locked in for a set amount of time). Others will allow you to take your money out whenever you want (after a qualifying period).

To participate, you will need to set up a YFSOL Polaris account if you don't already have one. Don't worry. It's simple and you only need to do it once. We'll help you.

We Are Launching with a YFSOL Classic Opportunity: FINE WINE

The wealthy person you work for makes their money by investing. Some of that goes on fine wines, classic cars, art… Don’t be fooled. These are investments too.

Over the past 30 years, The Liv-ex Fine Wine Investables Index grew by an average of 10.6% per year. The FTSE stock market only managed an average 4.7% per year in that time. Gold performed even worse: an average of 3.6% per year.
The increase in the value of fine wine shouldn’t come as a surprise. Each vintage gets scarcer each time a bottle is opened and the market (= demand) is growing rapidly year on year. On top of that, as a fine wine matures and improves, its value naturally increases as well.

Benefits of Investing in Fine Wine


Great returns


The Liv-ex Fine Wine Investables Index went up annually by 10.6% on average between 1988 and 2017. By comparison, the FTSE 100 went up 4.7% per year on average and gold 3.6% per year on average. (Beware: history is no guarantee of future performance.)
 

Excellent risk management


The value of fine wine has very little correlation with stock market values. It also tends to respond well to economic dips and uncertainty. Fine wine values went up during the 2008 recession and after Brexit was announced. In other words, investing in wine is a great way to reduce volatility in your overall investment portfolio.

The Benefits of Investing in this Wine Opportunity


Getting the right wines


This opportunity invests with a wine fund that has scored above average value growth in the wines it has selected to invest in. You might know a good claret when you taste one, but do you know which ones will probably perform best as an investment?
 

Balancing your risk


This opportunity will invest your money in a range of carefully selected wines, reducing your exposure to value fluctuations. Over time, the fund will also rebalance the portfolio to ensure stability by adding and deleting wines.
 

Lower costs


Investing in wine through a fund typically costs much less than if you were to invest directly through a merchant. A merchant has costs they pass on to you. A fund’s fees are aligned with you. While there are admin costs, most of the money you pay to a fund for running your investment are calculated based on the profit you make.
 

Hassle-free logistics


Where do you keep the wine? How do you check that the wine is what you ordered? And that it isn’t faulty? We use a fund that takes care of all that and keeps wine in the securest wine storage facility in the world. Guess what? That also keeps the insurance costs down. As a private collector/investor, you’d be looking at much higher insurance costs.
