Intellectual Property Investment Banking: Inflexion Point’s IP investment banking model is based on
the premise that IP is no longer viewed merely as a bundle of legal rights to be enforced or licensed.
IP is now viewed as a commercial asset class like real property or corporate securities. This change

models that have been used with more traditional asset classes.
Value Proposition: It’s widely recognized that
upwards of 70% of the market value of technology

intellectual property rights such as patents,
trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets, and less
well-defined assets such as customer loyalty, inter-

property rights, however, creates sustainable
