But what if...?

  • How much money are you looking for?

  • Any benchmark in the area that is being rented and for how much?

    Amēa Villas don’t really use a local benchmark and it will be hard, if not impossible, to compare it to any other development. The rental costs and event prices are set by our hotel management company/advisor, which has its main focus on luxury hospitality. The fees are rather on the conservative side (around 1/3 of what comparable luxury chalets cost in Switzerland, e.g.

  • Who is behind Amēa Villas?

    Amea Lago Maggiore Property AG is planning to develop a property together with SAOTA and Studio Forma (Architect of Record). Amēa is a brand incubated by Moonshot in collaboration with SAOTA. The president of the board of directors of Amea Lago Maggiore Property AG is Jean Popovic who later will be supported by operational team members such as Alejandra Abad (Director Business Development & Investor relations) and various real estate, and hospitality specialists.

  • How much tax do I have to pay on the returns generated from the investment?

    Due to the modern structure of the SPV profits are not subject to withholding until the total amount of the capital contribution is repaid. It’s also called a “Tax-free dividend”.

  • Does the company have experience with such projects?

    SAOTA, the architectural partner and designer has built hundreds of projects around the globe. It’s the most well-known brand for high-end luxury developments worldwide. A private residence in the same village has already been created by SAOTA. The executing architect comes from Ticino.

  • Where is the exact location of the property?

  • What happens if the money is not raised?

    There is no definitive answer to this question. If we can’t meet our funding goals, we are contractually allowed to cut the project in half and realize a smaller project on the same plot. The costs for access and garage development will then be split in half with the seller. In the unlikely event, the project fails completely the company will be liquidated or sold to a developer and the proceeds repaid to the shareholders and debt holders.

  • What security do I have as an investor?

    A unique architectural masterpiece in one of the last plots at one of the most breathtaking locations with high potential for value increase after its development. A one-of-a-kind piece of Swiss real estate.

  • How can I sell my shares?

    CHF 250’000

  • What major risks are involved?

    The risk that we face at the moment is that we do not raise sufficient money to realize this beautiful project.
