Private companies are the hotbed of innovation, employment creation, and economic diversity. Making it easier for emerging companies to secure financing on reasonable terms provides the oxygen that the economy needs to grow — and the enhanced returns sought by sophisticated investors.
But there are many obstacles to raising private capital, both for investors, and for the companies in which they invest. Many companies — and investors — face great challenges in finding the opportunities they need.
And sophisticated investors know that the equity of private companies carries significant risk — they often prefer more predictable, income-based assets.

Royalty Finance is one emerging answer to this question, pioneered by one of the most creative minds in modern business, Arthur Lipper. This website explores several developments being offered by Mr. Lipper and his partners.
