What is unique about investing in music?
The music industry has historically shown resistance to downturns, even when other economic sectors have not. In the first half of 2020, despite the impact of COVID-19 on the global economy, recorded music revenue continued a positive growth trend rising 5.6% to $5.7 billion in the U.S. and 9% to $22 billion worldwide. The sustained performance of music assets, along with its potential cash flow has attracted institutional investors for decades, now BMC is opening this investment oppututnity up to you.
How does an investment potentially earn returns?
Music investments typically generate returns in two ways:
Royalties - This is revenue generated on an ongoing basis from downloads, streaming, performance, and synchronization in TV programs, films, or advertising. We pay any earned investor royalties on a quarterly basis.
Appreciation - The increase of a musical works value over time. Appreciation isn't realized until the asset itself is sold. We acquire catalogs and individual works with the intent of earning returns through the eventual appreciation, while simultaneously producing potential quarterly royalties.
What’s the music like?
We love all kinds of music - rock, pop, jazz, folk, hip-hop, classical, latin. No genre is off-limits. Our team of music professionals and royalty auditors personally and diligently identify and analyze all of our catalog acquisitions. Our ability to identify high-quality, opportunistic investments is at the core of our success. As a result, our music catalogs are deeply diversified and well-vetted.
Does BMC charge fees?
One of the keys to our business model is our ability to minimize fees by eliminating typical industry inefficiencies. We use our improved technology and an in-house team of experts to achieve a fee structure that allows us to credit the fund 75% of the proceeds derived from the exploitation of the fund's music assets.
How does withdrawing money work?
Investing in a private music catalog is by its nature a relatively illiquid asset class. While there are some private exchanges, this kind of asset doesn’t have an open market where buyers are readily available, and sales can't be facilitated as quickly as public stock.
For this reason, our fund is designed to best serve investors who hold their investments for at least five years. We plan to liquidate underlying assets only when the right market conditions develop — ideally when sales will deliver favorable returns to our investors. That timing is inherently unpredictable.
However, we understand things can come up that may prevent our investors from remaining invested for the full term, and do work hard to provide a plan that lets investors request to redeem their shares early, subject to certain conditions and limitations.
For complete details about our redemption policy, please see our offering circulars, available at www.musicbenefactors.com/product/royaltypartners.
