How to Build a Winning Portfolio of High-Income Royalty Assets

Investors are attracted to music royalties because... 

  • Music royalties generate uncorrelated income paid out on a regular basis (usually quarterly).
  • The music business is booming due to the explosion in music streaming services. This bull market is driving royalty income - even of decades-old music - upward. 
  • Music royalties have real estate like tax advantages.
  • The market is new, so great deals can still be had.


Returns data for catalogs administered by Royalty Exchange through October 31, 2019.


The opportunity is compelling, but that doesn’t mean investing in this asset class is simple.  To make intelligent investment decisions, investors must determine how to value these still esoteric assets.  And, they need access to deal flow. 

That’s why we introduced a membership program for active investors on our platform – All Access. The membership helps investors make better decisions while building their royalty income portfolio.

Membership Benefits


Automated Investing


All Access members are eligible to participate in our automated investing by placing Standing Orders. With standing orders, you can define the criteria for the assets you wish to acquire, and our platform will match incoming catalogs automatically, bypassing the auction process.


Some of the best assets we’ve seen have originated through standing orders.


Case Study: An Income Stream with a 30% Yield

One investor acquired a catalog through his Standing Order. The catalog may not have turned many heads at auction, but it typifies many catalogs available through Standing Orders. This 16-year-old catalog earned about $5,000/year. The royalty stream was acquired for $22,800 (4.5x earnings). In the 5 months he’s owned it, the investor received payments totaling $4,592.27, an annualized rate of return of 30.29%. Not only has the investor recouped more than 20% of his investment, but the value of the underlying asset grew nearly 40% as the annual catalog earnings skyrocketed to $7,080.


Catalogs purchased through Standing Orders have outperformed similar catalogs purchased on the auction house. Cash yields from assets originated through Standing Orders are 70% higher than similar assets that have come through the auction house.

With your All Access membership, you’ll be eligible to place Standing Orders and, as they’re filled, build out a portfolio of royalty generating assets.


Zero Acquisition + Admin Costs


Royalty Exchange administers payments on behalf of investors who acquire royalties on our marketplace. The price of this benefit comes in the form of a one-time buyer’s fee applied to the final price of every auction. The fee is equal to either $500 or 1% of the final deal amount, whichever is greater.

All Access members never pay these fees.

For investors actively building a portfolio, this has resulted in significant savings. One investor who’s purchased 20 catalogs has realized $10,000 in savings. That’s more than twice the cost of his membership increasing his overall returns. 

With your membership, you’ll see the fee waived on the purchase agreement of every new acquisition. 


Member Insights and Guidance

One of the most frequent requests we receive from investors is for guidance around investment in royalties. All Access members gain access to our monthly Insights reports — designed to provide members an edge when buying royalty assets.  

These reports leverage decades of data from thousands of music catalogs, examine market activity, and ongoing catalog performance data.

Topics range from valuation models and methodologies to tax considerations. For instance, did you know that music royalties provide real estate like tax advantages for investors?  In a past issue, we explained exactly how this works. 

Our Insights provide extra guidance to support successful royalty investing from both risk mitigation and wealth creation standpoints. 

The more informed we are, the better the investment decisions we make. That’s especially true in this burgeoning asset class... 

One investor, who’s purchased a dozen assets on the exchange, has this to say about a recent Insights Issue: 

"It's clear that the learning curve is steep among all of us investors and you guys are the PhDs bringing us all along."


Liquidity Discounts


While most investors purchase royalties as long-term investments, some take advantage of the increasing value of the asset class and choose to sell after a few years or even a few quarters. All Access members enjoy a 20% discount off marketplace fees when they sell.

With the recent launch of the Secondary Market, investors can now list their assets at a price they choose to solicit interest from potential buyers without taking an asset to auction.

Reselling assets is a great way to lock-in gains at any time.

With resales come marketplace fees, the cost of which may require the investor to hold the asset longer to cover those fees.

Thanks to the discount, All Access members have less restrictions on when they can sell.

As an example, for an average-sized catalog on our platform ($65,000), this discount would equate to $1,950 in savings.


Access to Private Syndicate Deals


Although rarely offered, Private Syndicates give All Access members access to world class catalogs through shares in larger, fixed-price assets.

These deals have included royalties from Dire Straits, Cage the Elephant, and Eminem catalogs. Offerings are available to All Access members before the general public. Sometimes, they'll never be available to the general public due to demand from the members.

Members receive access to investment documents, catalog financials, and can take their position before the general public even knows about the deal.


Royalty Analyst Support


All Access members can approach royalty investing with confidence knowing they have special access to the Royalty Exchange Investor Relations team.

The Ask an Analyst feature allows members to reach out with questions on specific catalogs, valuations, industry news, and more. Investors get immediate responses on some of their most pressing royalty investment questions. They also have the ability to influence the content of future Insights reports by submitting their suggestions. 

Not only that, but members have access to our Analysts’ Recommended price when purchasing assets on the Secondary Market. Members can use this algorithmically generated valuation as a jumping-off point for personalized valuations.

Features like this - exclusive to All Access members - are added frequently to the platform.
