Fast Facts You Need To Know


Mercuriadis is the founder of Hipgnosis Songs Fund Limited, a music IP investment company. In a 2019 interview with the journal Thought Economics, he said: “I have always believed that hit songs and music, art in general, has real value to it. What people don’t really recognise is that when a song becomes a proven song, the earnings pattern to it becomes very predictable and reliable, and is therefore investable. And these songs are as valuable as gold, or oil.” The company raised more than US $300 million to fund the acquisition of copyrights in June 2018, and began trading on the London Stock Exchange as SONG in July. Its first acquisition was a majority stake in The-Dream’s 302-song catalogue, which included hits such as Justin Bieber’s “Baby”, Beyonce’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” and Rihanna’s “Umbrella.” It has since acquired 100% of the Poo Bear, Tricky Stewart, TMS and Giorgio Tuinfort catalogues, as well as a stake in the catalogue of Chic co-founder Bernard Edwards.

In April of 2019, Hipgosis Songs raised an additional $185 million. In August, $62.8 million was raised, bringing the fund’s total lifetime raise to over $500 million US.
