The value proposition for investors

ICM was founded in 2003 to preserve and grow the wealth of retail, private client and institutional investors looking to diversify their portfolios through the use of alternative asset classes. We have earned a reputation as a trusted partner and leading provider of alternative investment solutions and manage more than $2 billion of assets on behalf of our investors in an array of investment opportunities focused on real estate, private equity and alternative income strategies.
John Courtliff, CEO, Partner & Portfolio Manager

Investment strategy

The Manager's objective is to provide investors with an attractive level of income with the potential for capital growth from investments in predominantly music intellectual property rights. The Manager seeks to acquire a diversified portfolio of interests, focused on streaming rights. Such investments may comprise of a partial or complete interest in performance (including streaming) and other royalties. Every time a song is played, streamed, performed or downloaded, the owner earns royalties.

Key Considerations

ICM can be a core investment for any investors portfolio because of its consistent performance and strict governance. ICM has:
  • ICM has >$2 Billion in Assets Under Management (AUM)
  • A clean track record and consistent income since founded in 2003
  • An established investor base, >6,000 investors and institutions with 0 losses
  • A tax-efficient structure for investors because income is partially shielded by depreciation. As such, distributions are expected to be predominately taxed as a return of capital (ROC) during an investors hold period
  • Music Royalties :
  • Are a high growth space driven by the rise of streaming
  • Require very little incremental capital or operating cost
  • Create income generation that is diversified from other asset classes*
  • Are long lasting assets (Life of the artist + 70 years)**
