Your Investment The Hideaways Club City Collection is the second Fund to be launched by The Hideaways Club. The first, the Classic Collection, has been an outstanding success offering over 200 Members ownership and use of 30 luxury villas (set to grow to 100), who have taken over 1,000 holidays to date. The properties range from exclusive retreats and ski chalets to luxury summer and winter-sun villas around the world. This is how The Hideaways Club City Collection works: there are two companies; the Property Company which is wholly owned by the Club Members and the Operating Company which manages the properties on behalf of the Members. When joining the Club, you will buy a share in the property company at the current share price, which is re-valued at least once a year. Your investment will be in a portfolio of apartments

in key cities around the world. If Members wish to leave the Club, they can sell their share at the current share price and benefit from 80 per cent of any increase in the capital growth of the portfolio. The Hideaways Club City Collection has a Member to property ratio of 10 to 1, to ensure flexibility, availability and year-round access to all the apartments. To ensure that this ratio is preserved and excellent availability is maintained, the City Collection will invest in apartments in advance of offering Membership. Members pay an annual cost contribution each year, which covers all the costs of maintaining and servicing the apartments and allows Members access to the Club’s unique personal Concierge Service. Many Members also share use of their investment with friends, family and colleagues.
