A BLANCO CHEQUE; FINANCE.

Byline: Edited by GRAHAM HISCOTT

Investment company Hipgnosis Songs Fund has bought the music catalogue of awardwinning US hitmaker Benny Blanco. Hipgnosis, which makes its investors money through song rights and royalties, said it had acquired 100% of Blanco's copyright ownership in songs released since 2015.

Although not a household name, Blanco, 31, has written 29 No 1 songs for the likes of Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber, Rihanna and Katy Perry. He has been nominated for seven Grammy awards.

Hipgnosis, founded by Merck Mercuriadis, did not reveal how much it had paid to secure the deal.
