Building the bridge between music industry and financial markets.

ABOUT ANOTE MUSIC

ANote Music is the European marketplace for investing in music royalties and was founded in Luxembourg by Marzio F. Schena, Matteo Cernuschi, and Grégoire Mathonet in January 2018. ANote Music has identified the opportunity in music as an alternative asset class, and is bridging the gap between the music industry and the capital markets. ANote Music enables publishers, record labels, and artists to sell music rights, introducing a new system of financing, as well as offering users a new investment opportunity and the chance to own shares in promising artists.

In January 2020, ANote Music closed a €500,000-plus funding round, led by the European music industry’s foremost players. ANote Music is also supported by Luxinnovation, the Luxembourg national innovation agency, providing access to government funding.

Mission

ANote Music opens up market access to music royalties and unites investors and fans with publishers, artists, record labels and catalogues across one platform. By leveraging technological solutions and advanced order booking, ANote Music has launched the music industry’s first real stock exchange. The platform democratises funding through primary and secondary market offerings of music rights, making the entire market more transparent and traceable. Following a strong financial strategy, ANote Music works with regulated partners and entities, bringing music royalties into the 21st century as an universal accessible asset class.

Vision

ANote Music is uncovering the hidden value in music for all by creating Europe’s first marketplace for investing in and trading music royalties. By opening up music royalties to fans and investors across the world, ANote Music provides access to a universal, diversified asset class. ANote Music will unite the financial markets and music industry behind one shared funding model that will foster the continued creativity of the music business and establish music royalties as a prominent alternative asset class.

“We are here to challenge the status quo of the music industry and help unlock the full potential of human creativity.”

— Marzio F. Schena, CEO

“There are two things everyone around the world can appreciate: music and money. ANote Music is the lovechild of these two.”

— Matteo Cernuschi, COO

“When new technology and traditional industries meet, you can expect something big to happen. We are going to make the world discover the hidden value in music.”
