Marcus Allen | Fine Wine Investment – the Pleasure, the Pitfalls, and the Profit…

The case for investing in fine Wine, an intimate workshop

Having read Business at the University of Nottingham Marcus entered the City of London in 2008 working at Goldman Sachs and formerly the Royal Bank of Scotland Group. During his time within Investment Banking he built up a vast knowledge base across the board within the financial sector and an acute understanding of the economy. In January 2015 Marcus brought those skills to Cult Wines in order to build out the Agency side of the business, working with IFAs, Wealth Managers and Private Banks and their clients across Europe, the Middle East and Asia, helping them to achieve exposure to the Alternative Investment market and diversification from the financial sector.

Outside of work Marcus is, similar to the rest of the office, an avid sports fan, playing rugby and golf whilst spending a lot of time at the weekend with a paint brush in hand as a beginner property developer. On the wine front Marcus naturally gravitates to Italian wines from Piedmont (Angelo Gaja a particular favourite) but is equally partial to the Pinots and Chablis of Burgundy.
