Why Royalties Belong in Your Portfolio

Investors are always looking for ways to protect their money while maximizing overall returns. Stock and bond markets can be unpredictable and susceptible to macro events, which is why many turn to alternative investments to diversify. Royalties provide a great option. 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.

Uncorrelated Assets

Royalty payments, especially music royalties, perform independently of public markets, making them the purest form of alternative investment.

Competitive Yield

Royalties have a track record of strong earnings, with the potential to deliver double-digit yields that rival bonds and dividend-paying stocks.

Passive Income

Royalties let you earn money while you sleep. They are a “cut off the top,” paid regularly, that put you first in line to receive the cash flows they generate.

All Access Membership

Royalty Investing Made Easy

Royalties are a unique asset class. Royalty Exchange makes investing in them easy for you.

Asset Packaging

Royalty Exchange makes royalties investable by packaging them into familiar investment formats and horizons:

  • Term Based: Investor collects royalty income for a fixed period of time (typically 10 years). Royalty income then reverts to the original seller after the end of the term.
  • Life of Rights: Investor collects royalty income for the length of the underlying copyright (Lifetime of the creator PLUS 70 years).

Valuation Support

Understanding the key characteristics of royalty performance is critical to investing with confidence. Royalty Exchange helps investors build a valuation methodology and determine position size through detailed performance metrics. And we provide the educational resources needed to digest them.

Risk Mitigation

Royalty Exchange vets and verifies all royalty opportunities before listing them on the marketplace. This minimizes ownership disputes. Our legally binding contracts reduce transaction risk. And we provide administration services to streamline post-sale income collection and distribution. Finally, our secondary market provides investors with the option to liquidate when desired.

Flexible Portfolio Development

Acquire royalties directly from rightsholders through online auctions, make an offer to buy assets from other investors through our secondary market, or leave standing offers filled automatically by incoming opportunities that meet your custom criteria.
