Top Alternative Investment Film Fund Targets Private Equity Investors,Family Offices,Venture Capital
With the global box office receipts for Man Of Steel, World War Z, Hunger Games, etc., Accredited Private Equity Investors, Hedge Funds, Venture Capital, Can Participate In Alternative Investment Opportunities In Media & Enterainment
With names like Jim Breyer of Accel Partners, Fred Smith of Fedex, Mark Rachesky of MR Fund Management, Tim Headington, Larry Ellison of Oracle, and institutional investors such as Waddell & Read, Fortress, Fidelity, and numerous others, the list is growing of private backers of film funds that bring back an astronomical return on investment.
"Historically, investors were limited to where a movie's profits would come from that was based on theatrical, video, and DVD", adds Yuri Rutman, Managing Partner of Noci Pictures' private equity fund. "But now its a level playing field with the explosion of Video On Demand along with hedging strategies that can get investors back a majority of their invested equity prior to revenues".
For a while Noci Pictures put its fund raising efforts on hold until the capital markets became more active again. It is now putting together a large private equity deal that may involve a co-financing partnership with a major studio partner.
"If you look at the summer box office revenues of the most profitable films such as "Superman Returns", "World War Z", and others, they were all backed by private investors. These groups are not in it for red carpet parties but long-term equity plays".
Noci Pictures' business model is structured on having a more transparent and risk minimized organization that gives investors a priviliged opportunity to invest in media & entertainment deals.
The company is in discussions with various private equity investors as well as accredited ultra high net worth investors and family offices on the upside of an alternative investment in film, tv, and digital content.
"The convergence and growth of theater screens, digital distribution, video on demand, and risk minimzation strategies is proving to be a superior business model on the evolution of a 100 year old industry vs. a lot of investors who are spreading their risk across many startups hoping for a lottery ticket win", adds Rutman.
