Markets were shocked on Friday after British citizens voted to depart the European Union. The markets and the financial media were simply flat out wrong about the Brexit in the days leading up to the June 23 vote.
While speculation ramped up all week, one key thing was regularly missing from commentary. Few explained how investors could manage risk over what may be the biggest geopolitical shock of the last twenty years.
What many in the media fail to understand is this that the audience wants to know the same thing: How do you make money and how do you protect yourself against such risk?
Yet too often, the people on the screen's don't have a reliable track record and they're rarely held accountable by reporters and anchors when they're dead wrong.
Well, today, we're exploring an uncorrelated alternative asset that has generated significant value for a select group of investors in 2016: Music royalties.
And we're explaining why these recession-proof, Brexit-proof assets are poised to be one of the best investments you can own in the years ahead.
The Media Has Ignored this Investment Too Long
Each day, the financial media chases headlines. They rattle on about interest rates that are never raised. They seem shocked by oil volatility that has been constant for two years.
And they're always chasing shocking quotes to help generate web clicks on their news sites.
They rarely spend enough time talking about once-in-a-lifetime investment opportunities because they simply don't understand certain alternative markets.
One industry that is going through a generational turnaround right now is the music business. Revenues have declined for the last 20 years due to changes in technology and the digitalization of music.
But the industry is back on the rise thanks in part to a significant transition toward paid-streaming services. Now, these services might not have paid as much money in the past as traditional sales of CDs and records did when customers purchased albums. But the explosion in paid-streaming is expected to fuel a strong recovery from an industry that many investors abandoned.
This is a terrific contrarian play and a chance to get in on the ground floor before this becomes one of the market's favorite alternative investment later this decade.
And we're going to show you the best way, right now.
Get in Before Wall Street Catches On
The best way to invest in this turnaround industry is to own the intellectual property rights tied to the world's most popular music, art, film, and other forms of entertainment.
Traditionally, there hasn't been a developed marketplace for the buying and selling of royalties. For decades it was very difficult for musicians, artists, authors, and others to sell their intellectual property to interested investors like you.
But now musicians, songwriters, producers and anyone else who owns intellectual property can sell their rights to anyone.
And here's the best part.
If you own the rights to a breakthrough song, you get paid every time that it is purchased on iTunes, streamed on Pandora, even downloaded on Amazon Prime.
If you own the rights to music from a film like Dumb and Dumber, which starred comedy legends Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, you get paid every time that song is played.
In fact, one lucky buyer recently purchased the rights to cash streams from a portfolio of songs to comedy films that includes Dumb and Dumber, Shallow Hal, There's Something About Mary and more. They did it on Royalty Exchange, the world's premier platform for the buying and selling of royalty assets.
Best of all—this auction price equated to an annual yield of 19.67% based on last year's royalty payouts.
That sort of mouth-watering yield should be music to an investor's ears, as the possibility that one could generate that level of yield for decades is not one you will find with many stocks and it certainly would be hard to replicate without significant speculation over the Brexit.
