The Royalty Investment Opportunity

Why Royalties Belong In Your Portfolio

Investors are always looking for ways to protect their money. Stock and bond markets can be unpredictable. Which is why many turn to alternative investments to diversify.

Royalties provide a great option to do so. Owners of intellectual property get paid every time someone uses their work. They create an asset once, and then collect payment over and over again.

How To Invest

Royalty Exchange offers multiple ways to invest in royalties. They include our flagship auction marketplace and our new Private Syndicate program. 

Royalty Auctions

Our online marketplace allows investors like you to get find quality royalty investment opportunities directly from the owners themselves.

This gives you direct access to cash-generating intellectual property rights previously available only to institutional investors and industry insiders.

We don’t conduct backroom deals or broker private transactions. Instead, we facilitate public auctions and on a level playing field where everyone has access to the same information and opportunities.

Each listing includes the details necessary to help investors understand the income stream listed for sale:

  • Historical earnings of the catalog
  • Relevant rights and catalog information
  • Links to contextual research, news, and other information

Private Syndicates

Private Syndicates give accredited investors the ability to buy an equity interest in multi-million dollar, top-tier, income-producing catalogs too large for the auction marketplace.

For each Private Syndicate, we'll create an LLC to hold the music royalties in question. Each is specifically set up to hold a single catalog and direct royalty income to its shareholders. Investors participate by purchasing units in that LLC, and are then entitled to their proportional share of income it generates.

Unlike auctions, there is no bidding. The cost of Private Syndicate units are known in advance, giving you the flexibility to take a position size in each catalog that best suits you. And only accredited investors can participate.

All Access Investor

Anyone can sign up for a Royalty Exchange account to bid on auctions and receive Private Syndicate notifications for free. However, we also offer a premium membership—All Access Investor—which provides significant additional benefits that include:  

  • Waived buyer's fees on auctions
