Pre-set Exits

What is the liquidity of Bourbon investment funds?

The liquidity of Bourbon investment funds can vary depending on the specific fund and its structure. In the case of The Bourbon Reserve's Whiskey Equity Investment Trusts (WEITs), which offer 3-year, 5-year, 10-year, and 10+ year funds, liquidity can be relatively limited compared to more traditional investments like stocks and bonds.

Bourbon investment funds are generally considered less liquid than traditional investments because:

  1. Time horizon: These funds typically have a longer investment horizon, which means investors may need to keep their money in the fund for an extended period to realize the full potential returns from the aging and appreciation of the Bourbon.

  2. Secondary market: Unlike stocks and bonds, which are traded on exchanges with high liquidity, there may not be an established secondary market for selling interests in a Bourbon investment fund. This can make it more challenging to exit the investment before the fund's maturity or liquidation.

  3. Fund structure: Some Bourbon investment funds may have restrictions on redemptions or withdrawals before the fund's maturity, which can further limit liquidity.

It is essential to carefully consider the liquidity aspect of investing in a Bourbon investment fund and ensure it aligns with your financial goals, risk tolerance, and investment horizon. If you require more liquid investments or may need to access your funds in the short term, Bourbon investment funds may not be the most suitable option. Consult with a financial advisor for guidance tailored to your specific situation.
