Philip Gearing has a broad wine investment knowledge base combining financial markets experience with fine wine expertise to provide a unique mix of skills ideally positioned for the investment services offered by Cult Wines.
Philip spent over 20 years in investment banking with some of the market leading firms including Goldman Sachs, Swiss Bank Corporation & Tokyo-Mitsubishi and therefore has both the technical & business skills required to develop the range of investment options that Cult Wines offers to its clients.
Philip has also spent many years in the fine wine market launching a specialist Burgundy merchants in the mid-90’s and was founding partner of Financial Wines in 2001 which led the way in offering on-line price transparency services to the International fine wine community.
When it comes to wine Philip's overriding passion is Burgundy, but his tastes extend globally searching for new and exciting Pinot Noir's to compare with the favourites from the estates of Dujac, Meo Camuzet & Chevillon.
Besides fine wine, Philip’s interests include both golf and tennis. As a West Ham season ticket holder whose first visit to the Boleyn Ground was in 1965, his decision to support the ‘Bobby Moore Fund & Cancer Research’ as Cult Wines’ chosen charity was an easy one!
