Welcome to the May 2017 Liv-ex newsletter
Bordeaux might be dominating the headlines at the moment, but in April trade for the region dipped. The Liv-ex 100 Index drifted for the first time in nearly a year and a half, and it was Bordeaux pulling it down. The pricing levels of the new releases – a key concern expressed by members in our En Primeur survey – will likely help to inform the market’s future direction.
