This week's Office Hours began with a quick overview on how to evaluate listings for assets that are not music related. Often, Royalty Exchange will list assets for royalties tied to film or trademarks.
The fundamentals of evaluation remain the same. First, look for the age of earnings, which is a bit easier with Film/TV or trademark assets because with those there's typically only one title to evaluate (rather than a blended catalog as is common with music).
Next is looking at the source of the earnings. With Film/TV for instance, look for what platforms stream the title, is it in syndication or likely to stay in syndication, etc.
Other questions coming from attendees focused on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on music royalties and future forecasts, how to justify music royalties as serious investments (rather than a fad or gimmick), tax details, and much more.
