About Royalty Exchange
Artists turn to Royalty Exchange to raise money and take control of their financial future. We connect them with private investors through the world’s first online marketplace for buying and selling royalties. Creators love us because we give them a powerful new way to fund their career. Investors love us because we help them generate income that's hard to beat. And our commitment to transparency and honesty ensures value for all.
We're committed to unlocking the financial power of intellectual property to everyone.
Until now, royalty transactions took place in private. They were available only to industry insiders who held all the cards.
This kept prices low and values cloaked in mystery. Deals were all-or-nothing, take-it-or-leave-it offers. Only the biggest and richest creators could attract interested buyers. And private investors lost out on opportunities for significant returns.
We're disrupting this outdated system. Our online marketplace introduces competition, transparency, and honesty to the process. It brings together creators and investors to offer something the other needs, and share a mutual benefit.
The result creates more value for everyone involved. Creators get access to interested buyers, as well as control over what they sell and who they sell to. Investors get access to royalty earning assets, and a liquid market to buy and sell them. And the industry gains free-market insights into the value of its intellectual property.
Royalty Exchange offers a stark alternative to the shady, bullying, and predatory practices that have defined the royalty business to date. Most companies offering to buy royalties are trying to get the best deal possible by paying as little as they can. Private advance companies are nothing more than payday lenders burying you in debt.
We don’t buy or sell royalties. We don’t provide advances or loans. We simply operate a marketplace where buyers, sellers, and lenders come together to conduct deals. Our success depends on maintaining the health of this marketplace. A healthy marketplace creates more value for all involved. So the better we do our job, the more opportunity we create for you.
When artists achieve artistic freedom through financial security, we win. When investors can finally generate meaningful returns on their investments, we win. And when our customers use the proceeds they earn on Royalty Exchange to create new value outside the confines of the marketplace itself, we all win.
That’s why we’re committed to transparency, honesty, and fairness. We let the free market dictate the price and terms that it will support. And we will never risk harming the health of the marketplace for the sake of an individual deal, no matter how much it may benefit us.
After all, this isn’t our marketplace... it’s yours.
