This is interesting to note – Cult Wines also provides digital tools for its investors so they can manage their own portfolios. One key tool is based on Vintel (a web app), a proprietary technology, that will automatically analyze, allocate wines, and actively manage portfolios. The client portal also allows investors to track their portfolio and receive buy and sell recommendations from the company’s investment committee.
“We looked at what we had done previously and explored optimising user experience and how we build, balance and allocate portfolios using proprietary tools and modelling to seek the highest yields possible for our clients,” stated Corey Parkinson, Global Head of Product. “Every aspect of the platform, from digital onboarding, automated portfolio generation and our client portal have been re-imagined using a best practice tech stack and data science approach. These tools enable our team to maximise their insights and experience to deliver an unparalleled customer experience.”
“Historically, the wine investment category has been perceived as only for the wealthy, or those with considerable wine knowledge. We know that is not the case and are enabling more people to invest effectively while maintaining the client service, impeccable standards, and returns for which we are known,” Atul Tiwari, CEO, The Cult Wines Americas “Equally important is the investment we have made in developing technology that gives our team of experts unrivalled tools to complement their market expertise.”
