Kellogg Alumni Club of London

Welcome to the Kellogg Alumni Club of London

Fellow Kellogg & Northwestern Alumni in London,

Most of us buy wines to enjoy with dinner or to take along to a party, however, how many of us have looked at wine as an investment to balance out our portfolio?  Or looked at the asset class as a viable capital appreciation instrument?  Well, now we have a specialist, David Farber, Managing Director of Monopole Portfolio Management, who will enlighten us to the nuances of investing and collecting (yes and consumption) of fine wines.   After 15 years in investment banking and asset management, David became director of IG Wines, a wine investment company before launching Monopole Wine PM. David has a passion for wine and has been an avid collector for 14 years.



Collecting Wine - Everything You Need to Know in Order to Collect Fine Wine


Whether for investment or consumption, there are a few very important issues people need to understand that will be discussed that evening:

         Where to store?

         What and where to buy?

         How to check prices?

         How to resell?

         Follow up and manage your wine collection

         Performances of the fine wine market

Followed by a tasting of 3 wines.

Please join the Kellogg/Northwestern alumni community for this event.     There will be a 15 charge to attend the event but this will include the discussion and a tasting of 3 wines.   Additional drinks and charcuterie will be available at the bar.

Space for this event is limited as it is capped at 30 individuals.   We encourage you to register at the earliest to avoid disappointment!

Event Leaders: Roddy Urquhart '93 & Oliver Ontiveros 04
