Insights at hand

From high-level music market trends to detailed analysis of the songs and contracts that matter to you, you'll have the tools you need to thrive.

Why now?

The music industry faces a host of challenges driven by the economics of the new music business: disintermediation by digital streaming providers (DSPs), limited access to capital on favorable terms, the need to re-invest in artist development, and an over-reliance on streaming revenues as subscription prices and margins shrink. These problems stem from a lack of free cash flow and independent market data. Meanwhile, institutional and retail investors have only limited, costly access to this highly attractive, uncorrelated asset class.

Streaming music, the underlying market, generates $19B in annual revenue and is on track to reach $45B by 2030, according to Goldman Sachs. If a small fraction trades actively as derivatives, it will produce add-on effects for all related markets. If only 20% of streaming revenue contracts trade, it offers the potential to double the underlying market. MFE will create the first market for these contracts in partnership with major record labels.

Team

Trustream's founding team brings decades of proven leadership and operations success in strategy, finance, and technology with Goldman Sachs, Deloitte, Microsoft, Accenture, and Booz Allen Hamilton, production and songwriting credits with multiplatinum artists like Ariana Grande, Kesha, and One Direction, and experience building global, high-throughput distributed systems and cybersecurity for clients ranging from three-letter US intelligence agencies to multi-billion dollar energy and financial services companies.
