Joining All Access is the best way to assemble a portfolio of royalty assets and help protect against market fluctuations. It’s a special membership program for investors looking to quickly and confidently invest in royalties.
If you’re like most investors, you’re drawn to music royalties because:
Because this market is still relatively unknown, you can still find amazing deals. And our All Access members have a big edge in acquiring assets before the rest of the market recognizes the opportunity.
Members have access to proprietary research, discounts on purchases, and concierge access to the team at Royalty Exchange.
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-nascent assets. And, they need access to deal flow.
That’s why we introduced a membership program for the most active investors on our platform — All Access. The membership helps investors make more informed decisions with advanced tools to help build a royalty income portfolio.
All Access members are eligible to place Standing Orders without restriction. With Standing Orders, you can define the criteria for the assets you wish to acquire, and our platform will match to incoming catalogs automatically, bypassing the auction process. Some of the best assets we’ve seen have originated through standing orders.
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 first 5 months, 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. Returns from assets originated through Standing Orders are 25-50% higher than similar assets that have come through the auction house.
With your All Access membership, you’re eligible to place Standing Orders and, as they’re filled, build out a portfolio of royalty generating assets.
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 1% of the final deal amount, with a $500 minimum.
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 alone, increasing his overall returns.
With your membership, you’ll can also enjoy waived fees on every new acquisition.
One of the most frequent requests we receive from investors is guidance around investment in royalties. All Access Investors gain access to our monthly Insights reports—designed to give you an edge when buying royalty assets.
These reports leverage decades of data from thousands of music catalogs, examine market activity, and ongoing catalog performance analytics.
The topics of these reports 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 reports are especially focused to provide the guidance needed to support successful royalty investment 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:
Free Sample Insight: Tax Benefits of Royalty Investing
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.
Investors can re-list assets acquired on Royalty Exchange at a price they choose to solicit interest from potential buyers without taking an asset to auction via The eXchange.
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 fewer 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.
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 open to the general public due to the overwhelming demand.

All Access Investors can approach royalty investing with more ease 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. With a targeted one business day response, investors are guaranteed to get a quick response on some of their most pressing royalty investment questions.
Members also have access to our Analyst Benchmark pricing guidance when reviewing assets on the Market. This algorithmically generated number is a jumping-off point for valuations, or to anchor offers on the hundreds of catalogs available on the Market—both Direct Listings and resales.
Finally, All Access members can download raw earnings history data on all Market listings. This historical earnings data can be analyzed and incorporated into external modeling tools as desired.
New features like these—exclusive to All-Access members—are added frequently to the platform.
The way this membership program works is simple, you pay an initiation fee and then annual dues. The initiation fee is $4,997, including your first year’s access. After that, you’ll pay just $997 per year to maintain your membership.
Of course, joining All Access does not make sense for everyone. But if you’re interested in assembling a portfolio of high-yield royalty assets, this is the best way to do it.
You'll get all of that as soon as you join. And of course, as we roll out new benefits for our members, you’ll get those too.
