What is the principal difference of Investment Club compared to other numerous investment funds in Europe? What makes Investment Club unique?First, we work only in the luxury segment, where special talent is required in everything and where there is an unoccupied niche for business. Very often the notion of luxury is substituted at best by the premium class and often does not correspond to the declared level. The team of the Investment Club consists of people with extensive experience in this very segment. The sphere of our interests - real estate, which has no match in the world. Secondly, we create all the ideas, business plan and implementation, acting as a developer. All the necessary team for this is assembled. Thirdly, we own our own factories to produce numerous items of decoration, both for use in architecture and to build unique interiors. This gives us the opportunity to get the right production cost and thus increase the profitability of the business. What makes the Investment Club unique are its unusual ideas, the creation of real estate projects with a rate of return incommensurable in the industry. The Investment Club offers a tailor made solution.
What does the company's slogan "A New Look at Real Estate Investments" mean?It means that all the projects we create have a completely different approach to their implementation. What is fundamental for any investor? It is making a profit. The level of profitability of real estate investment is well known in the market and in the industry as a whole. However, our ideas lead to a radical redefinition of the rate of return for investors. This is due to our know-how: the uniqueness of the idea itself and the fact that we supply goods for projects from our own factories outside Europe. With our extensive experience in the luxury sector, we know how to create profit with margins that are disproportionately higher than industry standards. By a new look we also mean a new look at architecture, interior design, landscape and standards of luxury living, which puts projects and properties beyond the competition of the market.
What category of clients is the Investment Club website designed for?We are designed for a fairly wide audience. In fact, Investment Club is a club of unique ideasю The sphere of activity would suit both professional investors from investing in a private villa or in a large conceptual project of a whole settlement to entrepreneurs looking for interesting ideas to get a new business. We are able to offer such ideas. The site is also for private clients who are just looking for a property as their home. However, they are looking for a level of real estate that is simply not on the market for the money they are willing to spend. With the Investment Club, they can get their home for less than market price, but at a true luxury level. The market does not offer that. How does this all work? We know how! What is impossible for everyone is possible for a select few!
Why an Investment Club and not just an investment fund?Investment funds are broad-based companies. As a rule, the level of projects is quite standard in the industry and is designed for a wider range of investors. Club activity in itself implies elitism and a special niche for business. The club unites like-minded people. Besides, the luxury niche is a very specific sphere of business, it requires a lot of experience, knowledge and possibilities for implementation. The higher the level of business in this sphere, the more difficult it is to enter it: there are not so many specialists in this segment. And then, luxury requires unique ideas. There are far more investors in the world than there are good ideas. Therefore, the first purpose of the club is to generate such ideas, with no match on the market. As for any club we do not need the masses, we rely on the select few. There are not many palaces and the Firebirds do not fly in flocks.
In addition to projects with investment in the construction of villas, what other areas the Investment Club has to offer?Of course, creating a unique concept of private villas are not the only projects of the Club. Everything we do is like handmade one-of-a-kind product. A simple idea, at the first glance, could be turned into one of a kind concept, if it is competently formulated, thought out and calculated. For example, it could be a boutique hotel with the name of the world's greatest brands. This is the idea behind such a project. Or it could be retirement homes, but made in such a way that it is unlikely to remain without customers. The main thing is to be different from the others, not to do it like everyone else: neither better, nor worse. You have to do things your own way. And a lot of other things. It's better to see once than to hear hundred times.
Could the business of renovation of old property be profitable enough with Investment Club?Absolutely YES. In business more than 25 years in interior design and construction for the elite clients from Asia, we know everything how to transform the existing house into a spectacular product for sale. If you also have a prime location, your chances have no limits as we know how to make the property collectable and bring completely new look as if it is brand new real estate. Yes, you need some reasonable investment but the result is your award to do that. We know how to impress the buyer.
