Why Do YieldStreet Offerings Fill So Fast?

We have recently received a few questions from investors about how offerings are launched on our website and what determines entry. When YieldStreet first started, investment offerings could sometimes take days to fill. However, as word spread about YieldStreet, demand for our investments has also surged. Many offerings have recently been fully allocated in a matter of seconds, making it difficult for everyone who wants to invest to be able to participate. For example, a recent Merchant Cash Advance offering filled in under 3 seconds. The below redacted graph from our analytics system, shows our site volume during a recent offering. Volumes on the YieldStreet site often more than quadruple when an investment offering launches. Though we try to be as fair as possible, we understand this experience can be frustrating and want to address any concerns you may have. It is important to clarify that when an offering opens for investment, entry is granted on a first come, first serve basis, and the offering is opened at the exact announced launch time. We often receive numerous investment requests that are time stamped to the exact millisecond as many other investors.  It is a top priority for the YieldStreet team to create more opportunities for our investors. We believe this outsized demand demonstrates the desirability of our investment opportunities in the market. As announced in January, we closed a $100M revolving credit facility. This will allow us to increase both the size and frequency of our offerings, giving investors more overall opportunities to participate. We have been ramping-up our investment diligence over the past few months and have greatly expanded our investment team to find and source new opportunities. In addition, we recently launched a new legal structure for certain offerings, borrower payment dependent notes (BPDN), that will remove investor volume limitations currently experienced with SPVs (99 member limit). BPDN will also help bring down investment minimums. The first offering of this kind recently launched with our first Marine Finance offering in April. Finally, we are currently alpha testing a new product called AutoInvest which will allow investors to be auto-allocated to investments that meet the preferences they indicate ahead of a general launch. We hope the above-mentioned activities will help satisfy the current and growing level of demand. We want to create as many opportunities as possible for investors to create wealth and participate in our offerings. If you still have questions, please email us at [email protected]
