If you too, like Ray Dallio, think cash is trash

Global equities and fixed income are experiencing a turbulent and volatile start of the year on the back of fears of rising rates, record inflation and geopolitical concerns.

These risks have caused many investors to seek out safe havens such as Treasury notes and Municipal bonds, or increase their cash positions. Others are waiting for markets to bounce back, unsure when that may happen. 

While we understand – and share – investor concerns, we also believe an outsized cash allocation may hinder long-term financial goals, not to mention increase the risk of inflation-driven losses. We also understand there are investors out there looking to take advantage of the market dislocation by adding growth exposure to their portfolio. 

At Yieldstreet, we have a comprehensive offer of different strategies designed to help investors navigate the current macroeconomic backdrop according to their personal risk-return profile and preferences.

  • Our defensive strategies, such as ST Income Notes or a Scottsdale real estate offer, can provide investors with potentially higher income – compared to traditional safe havens – while keeping enough potential for downside protection. 
  • Our “diversified” strategies, such as the Prism Fund and our Growth and Income REIT, enable investors to diversify their portfolios by offering exposure to a large array of private market assets and opportunities. 
  • Our growth strategies, such as the Enhanced Crypto Fund or the Fetch Private Shares, which allow investors to take advantage of recent market weakness, with opportunities for potential long-term capital appreciation 

Yieldstreet’s goal is to become a holistic platform for private market exposure, by increasingly expanding offering opportunities across the private market spectrum. Eventually, Yieldstreet believes that a majority of investors, regardless of their risk-return profile and current perception of market environment and outlook may benefit from the diversification and additional income potential provided by private markets.
