You want the luxury of variety—access to beautiful homes all over the world—but you’re also a savvy investor. There are a surprising (and sometimes confusing) number of choices when deciding on a vacation real estate and/or lifestyle investment.

But equity funds can be more investment-oriented than destination clubs and provide their shareholders ownership of their residence portfolios. Download our guide to luxury vacation home options to help you determine which real estate investment is right for you.

Your money goes to work as soon as you invest, and you go on incredible vacations with the people you love. Equity Residences Funds:
