Music Royalties

Music Royalties

Music royalties are in the sweet spot of real asset investing, as music copyrights and master recordings have both attractive valuations and significant growth prospects.

Copyright Law

Copyright Law

Copyright law protection is robust in the US and other major royalty-producing territories, and the infrastructure for collecting royalties owed is sophisticated and efficient.

Cash Flow

Cash Flow

Alchemy’s professionally selected music royalty portfolios pay current cash flow starting immediately. There is no ramp up period required to realize free cash flow.

Low Volatility

Low Volatility

Music royalty portfolios exhibit low volatility of returns and low correlation to traditional asset classes. Additionally, music copyrights and master recordings don’t typically risk default or the potential for destruction.

Maintain Value

Maintain Value

And music investments rarely (if ever) require reinvestment to maintain value over extended periods of time.

Learn much more about the songs and music in our portfolio…


Alchemy acquires catalogs for its investors, quite often direct from the artists/creators, at attractive steady-state yields.

And then its dedicated royalty administration team, Concord Music, “shakes the tree” to increase yield by proactive media and consumer marketing, opening new markets, creating derivative works, and exercising determined, persistent royalty collection.

The “property management” team at Concord Music writes over a thousand new media licenses a year, adding value to investors’ owned/managed works…write us to request the latest sampler reel.

Continuing advances in technology and global commercialization introduce still more opportunities to generate incremental licensing revenue.  And growth of global distribution channels further contributes to incremental cash flow.
