What is a bulk trade bid?
A bulk trade bid is the ordinary way for stock to exit the platform and for stock owners to realise their investment. It is the easiest way for an industry buyer to pick up a significant quantity of the whisky that they require for blending or bottling.
Stock owners are not obligated to accept this bid but by not doing so risk retaining ownership in a low liquidity stock line with reduced attractiveness to potential future industry bidders.
You can find a full list of bulk trade bids and trade purchase & withdrawals including returns on the bulk trade bids page.
