Launched in NYC in 2015, YieldStreet
aims to allow people to invest in alternative investments that are backed by real collateral. With the ultimate mission of “prosperity for all,” YieldStreet has plans to help “millions” of investors attain financial independence. With a world-class advisory board which recently added three new members Ron Suber (Prosper Group), Mitch Jacobs (On Deck)Alexandra Wilkis Wilson (Gilt Group) and a growing leadership team, including Volfi Mizrahi who just joined as Managing Director of Originations and Ivor Wolk as General Counsel, the platform’s growth is undeniable. This November YieldStreet announced that the platform had surpassed $200 million in originations… just six months after the investment platform achieved its $100 million in origination milestone. Who is leading this successful venture? Milind Mehere
