LIV-EX

London International Vintners Exchange, more commonly known as Liv-ex is the leading exchange for fine wines and includes 270 wine merchants, traders and negociants worldwide. Founded in 1999, Liv-ex runs an internet and phone based information, trading and settlement platform for fine wine merchants.

Trading:

The Liv-ex membership has expanded rapidly to include the world's major trade buyers and sellers, including merchants, brokers, retailers, importers, exporters and wine funds.

The exchange is regulated by the membership committee, which is made up of elected members of the trade and Liv-ex management. The committee sets and polices the exchange's rules. Every trade on liv-ex is governed by a pre-agreed trading contract and buyers are underwritten by credit insurance.
