I've recently added music royalties to my financial portfolio, as I've previously blogged about. They are, in my opinion, an excellent way to broaden your horizons. I don't view them as a method to achieve high-yielding returns that aren't tied to other asset classes, but I do see them as a way to generate decent, consistent returns that aren't tied to other asset classes (primary stocks and real estate). Pause here for 5 minutes to read my article about music royalties if you haven't already. I'll be patient. This article of mine is about How I Analyze A Royalty Investment in a simple way.
