Merck Mercuriadis, Founder, said, “This is a tremendous achievement in only 20 months and I would like to thank our investors and our incredible songwriters for their belief and helping us to firmly establish proven SONGs as an asset class. We now have a strong track record in raising money, investing it in great songs, managing them well and paying dividends. We have a tremendous pipeline in place to continue, in what are very challenging times, to give the financial community access to these wonderful assets that have very low correlation to wider markets.”
