Oak Group One PLC (“The Oak”) is an investment vehicle focusing exclusively on investing in rare whiskies, both bottles and barrels. The Oak will consist of a series of individual companies.
Interest in whisky as an investment has been growing steadily for many years and the positive trend seems to be continuing. Whisky as an investment has performed favourably against stock, bond, oil and gold performance (see image below). It offers diversification from stocks and other traditional assets.
The price of rare whiskies in auctions has risen strongly in recent years. An index produced by Rare Whisky 101, a company that produces data for collectors and investors, tracks the cost of the best performing 1,000 bottles and shows that prices have risen more than fivefold since 2010.
Quarter-end figures used. Figures refer to the past and past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results.
The Company is managed by a team of professionals with decades of experience in asset and fund management. The company’s advisors include:
The Oak is looking to raise up to one million pounds through the issue of 10,000,000 tokenised shares at 10p each. The Tokens represent B Ordinary Shares. The Oak is a PLC registered in the UK.
The aim of The Oak is to provide an annual return of over 20 percent by benefiting from rising prices of old and rare whiskies, both bottles and barrels.
Our goal is to sell these at a profit as the value increases over the remaining years of The Oak’s lifespan. The proceeds are then returned to investors. The Oak’s lifespan is from five to seven years depending on market conditions.
The Oak model envisages that 80% of the inventory will be retained as a long term investment while around 20% will be subject to active trading. Profits on trading activity will be used to make dividend payments possible. Dividends will be paid one to four times a year, based on the performance and cash flow proceeds from the liquidation of short-term inventory.
Investors do not pay any management or storage fees. A maximum of 20% of annual performance can be used for covering operating expenses. 60% of the performance will be paid out as dividends and 40% invested back to The Oak.
The Oak is fully transparent for its investors. Every transaction, purchase or sale will be documented on our blockchain ledger, currently in development. No transaction can be changed after it has been recorded and all transactions can be easily audited by The Oak investors. Shareholders will also benefit from our special offers as well as other benefits launched together with future global expansion.
