Everything you need to know about selling music & media royalties

Monetizing Music & Media Royalties

Music Royalties: Recording artists, songwriters and music publishers understand that the concept of a stable income is something more to be dreamt about than to be had in the music industry. We at Royalty Exchange understand that, for a music professional, receiving yearly royalty payments little by little, just doesn’t always cut it.

We specialize in connecting music industry professionals with accredited investors, creating valuable and timely transactions for both parties. We provide songwriters, publishers and recording artists with an efficient way to get upfront cash for their music royalties.

Songwriters can choose to monetize any portion of their ASCAP, BMI or SESAC writer’s share of public performance or production music royalties. Recording artists also have the option to monetize their royalty-based assets and sell any portion of their producer royalties. This allows artists to creatively leverage earnings out of previous hits and high earning titles to fund upcoming projects or personal financial obligations.

Film & TV Royalties: Royalties in film and television, better known as residuals, are paid when a movie or program is rebroadcasted. After a film’s theatrical release or the premier airing of a television show, directors, actors, actresses, writers and other key creatives involved in the work’s production are paid residuals for any subsequent airing including DVD release, broadcast television, syndication and new media use such as Netflix and Hulu streaming.

At Royalty Exchange, we specialize in connecting directors, performers, producers and other creatives with accredited investors, in an effort to convert their royalty assets into an upfront, one-time payment. We provide film and television industry professionals the opportunity to monetize their assets including film and television residuals (royalties), film tax credits and film receivables.
