TIPS WHEN INVESTING IN MUSIC STOCK
Here are some ways to make money through the music industry:
Stocks and Funds
Many music companies are publicly traded. While record companies are frequently part of larger media conglomerates, purer plays are also available.
David Bowie was one of the musicians to sell the value of his royalties as bonds on the investment market. Royalty-backed bonds have hit the market, allowing investors buy chunks of the income from the sales of back catalogs from famous artists.
An investment in music doesn’t have to come in the form of a financial vehicle. Musical collectibles can be a solid place to invest money with which you’re willing to take some risk.
