Chairman's Letter

Dear Investor,

On behalf of my fellow Directors, I am pleased to provide you with an opportunity to become a Shareholder in the Second Life group of Hope Capital Ltd.

Hope Capital Ltd. is a group in Second Life, a virtual world owned and operated by Linden Labs. The group is currently owned by myself, LukeConnell Vandeverre and operates the Hope Capital Centre which has rapidly expanding assets and business interests in the virtual economy of Second Life.

I first found out about Second Life in an interview with Anshe Chung by The Age, an Australian newspaper. It was through reading this interview that I decided to visit, sign up and download the software. I've been a resident of Second Life since the 3rd December 2006.

In just a little over 2 months I've seen the membership base of Second Life grow from around 1.8 million members to almost 4.3 million. It didn't take long for me to become convinced that the virtual world of Second Life will continue to grow at a rapid rate throughout 2007 and therefore it would be a great environment to establish a few in-world business ventures.

There are a large number of opportunities within the Second Life economy to generate significant profits using the linden currency as Anshe Chung has shown us. I purchased the World Currency Exchange from its creator Adam Constantineau with the intention to expand the current operations. I created the Hope Capital Ltd group to act as a company and began working on my vision to establish the Hope Capital Centre, a building that would also act as the financial hub of Second Life.

The Hope Capital Centre currently contains a virtual bank called OurBank and the World Currency Exchange along with the construction of a business networking club, leased offices and an auditorium for educational seminars on topics such as investing, fund raising and entrepreneurship.

The Company has a transparent management team with real life business experience. This is supported at the Board level by additional skills in marketing and successful business development in the Second Life economy provided by non-executive Directors.

The virtual world of Second Life is not regulated other than members adhering to the Terms of Service by Linden Lab. All persons related to Hope Capital will adhere to the Terms and Service and live by the company virtues to ensure a high standard of corporate governance and ethics.

The Directors and I believe that there are considerable opportunities for further growth in the Second Life economy and the Hope Capital Centre; therefore we have issued this prospectus to raise funds for the expansion our current operations along with the creation of the World Stock Exchange with a fully automated share trading system and live quotes.

Funding from the IPO raised L$ 4.5 million lindens at L$1 per Share, which, based on current budgets, will provide sufficient funds for planned expansion, marketing expenses, corporate overheads and working capital. A WSE listing will also further enhance the market profile of Hope Capital and provide it with additional access to capital to pursue future growth opportunities. Following the completion of the Offer, the Companies market capitalisation at the Offer Price of L$1.00 will be L$12.5 million.

On behalf of the Directors, it is my pleasure to invite you to become a shareholder in the Second Life group of Hope Capital Ltd and participate in its future growth and prosperity.

Kind Regards,

LukeConnell Vandeverre,
Chairman & CEO
