Selling the rights to future royalties is an emerging opportunity for top authors. For accomplished professionals, the ability to engage in legacy management, diversify financial assets, or prepare their estates by selling all or part of their future royalties is a growing need.

All of these deals involved selling rights to future royalties from music publishing to investors for upfront payment.
