Trading and Broking

We have teamed up with Liv-Ex, the world’s leading Fine Wine Trading Exchange, to offer a professional trading solution for the sale of all wine stocks.

The system offers real-time bid and offer prices for your wine. We also offer information on the last traded price and the date, a service created for Farthinghoe by Liv-Ex to offer greater market transparency and opportunities for our clients.

Liv-Ex has over 440 trade members worldwide. Due to strict trading compliance agreements, it is a ‘trade only’ exchange, typically listing in excess of £20 million of stock at any one time. By tapping into this market, we offer clients access to bids for their wine from across the world.
Further to that, the stock will also be offered on our own broking list which is circulated to our own clients worldwide, trade clients and ad hoc customers wishing to purchase directly from our website, further broadening the market audience.

Once an instruction has been received and offer prices have been agreed by our client, we will confirm the condition of cases with Octavian to ensure they comply with our trading terms with Liv-ex. The stock will then be added by us to the exchange as well as our broking list, and will be managed by us. Updates can be provided upon request and should we feel at any point that the stock needs to be reviewed we will contact clients accordingly.

Once the cases trade we will raise a purchase order to you minus our trading margin. Our margins, depending on the sales value, are as follows;

* Under £1,000 per case: 9.95%

* £1,000 to £2,999 per case: 8.95%

* £3,000+ per case: 7.95%

For large parcel commissions, special rates are available via prior agreement.

Proceeds, after the above deductions, will then be credited to your Farthinghoe account, and a separate invoice raised to cover part rental charges YTD + VAT plus a standard transfer cost of £9.75 +VAT per case, which will be deducted from the sales proceeds. After any debit balance has been cleared, sales proceeds are available on request at 30 days.

We are advised by Liv-Ex that these are the most competitive private rates on offer. We believe this offers our clients a comprehensive and informed solution to selling their wine.
