We’ve witnessed history. Near record-high trading volume and volatility in certain single name stocks. Fortunes made and lost. But the real story is so much bigger…the retail revolution is going mainstream, and individual investors are banging on the doors of Wall Street, demanding their fair share of access and influence in the markets.
We founded Yieldstreet on the very same premise – that retail investors were left out while the highest echelons of Wall Street earned significant profits. We believed that if we could leverage technology and bring together a community of retail investors en masse, that we too could have a seat at the table and aim to build a brighter financial future for retail investors. We also believed, and still do, that the best way to achieve this brighter financial future is through alternative investments that have historically only been offered to those deemed elite, such as institutions and the wealthiest of investors.
And we have. Our community is now 250,000+ members strong. We’ve funded over $1.6 billion in investments and have provided our members access to the kinds of alternative investments that were previously unavailable to them. We believe we’ve helped change the potential outcomes for retail investors forever as it is time to rethink the 60% stock / 40% bond portfolio and to modernize it to include alternative investments as an important component – just as institutions and the top 1% do.
In this moment in time, Yieldstreet will continue to further this case with large private equity, credit funds and alternative asset managers and originators. What we have worked on over the past 5 years is now going mainstream as more of these funds bring their products to our platform. Stay tuned for announcements regarding new institutional partnerships over the next weeks and months.
Yieldstreet is only a part of the story. We know that, but we’re just getting started. We hope you continue to join us as we grow and deliver on this promise.
