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.
Benefits To Investors
Royalty payments, especially music royalties, perform independently of public markets.
Royalties generate income that rivals bonds and dividend-paying stocks.
Royalties have a track record of earnings, paid regularly.

Each Sell Order contains in-depth earning information about the catalog, including:
Lifetime royalty payments
Recent earning trends

The buy side of the Order Book is the most automated way to invest on Royalty Exchange.
These are standing offers to invest in royalty assets that meet predefined criteria. Investors select several parameters catalogs must meet, including age, earnings level, earnings trend, music type, and more.
Catalogs match to these orders and rightsholders can accept the matching offer for and advance of catalog sale.

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.
