Yieldstreet Portfolio Snapshot: Q1 2022

We believe transparency is crucial to develop a trustworthy, long-lasting relationship with current and future investors, on our journey to become the one-stop shop alternative assets platform. Below is our Q1 2022 snapshot, with insights into Yieldstreet’s current overall portfolio and inception-to-date performance. In addition, please refer to our Statistics page for additional context and performance data.

To date, Yieldstreet’s investments have returned 9.7% annualized, net of fees3, approximately in line with their weighted average targeted return of 10.0%. As of Q1 2022, only fixed income investments previously offered on the platform have matured, and are therefore included in the above mentioned performance figure, which does not reflect future potential returns from different investment types. Current offerings – which include both debt and equity – may have different, in some circumstances potentially higher, return targets.

Portfolio Snapshot & Trends

While Yieldstreet’s mission of offering investors access to alternative investments has been consistent since inception, the composition of the types of offerings available to investors has changed.

We continued to implement our vision in 2021, as we expanded our product offerings by adding several third-party funds across private equity, venture capital & distressed strategies – featuring established managers – as well as our first two diversified art equity funds, and new structured notes. Reflecting investor demand in an environment of low interest rates, we successfully increased equity offerings on the platform, particularly in real estate. 

In line with prevailing macroeconomic conditions at the inception of the quarter, we continued our push towards offering additional equity products, including a new art equity fund and new commercial real estate properties. Amidst rising inflation, tightening financial conditions and more volatile markets, we launched new structured notes offering a yield comparable to our previous offerings despite their shorter duration. 

Among our notable achievements, we committed an additional $45 million in potential third-party fund opportunities in Q1 2022, bringing on board what we believe to be best-in-class partners across different asset classes. 

In the crypto space, we reinforced our successful partnership with Pantera, a renowned, cutting-edge crypto manager. The new offering – for which we are targeting a 50% return – offers exposure to early stage tokens in addition to Bitcoin and Ethereum, with potential to capture alpha in a growing market. 

In addition to that, we launched our Growth and Income REIT, an opportunity for investors to gain exposure to – primarily – equity investments in commercial real estate properties across key U.S. markets and property types.

Going forward, Yieldstreet believes alternative assets are likely to play a key role in a highly inflationary environment. According to Investment and Pensions Europe, “more than four in 10 pension funds plan to increase the inflation sensitivity of their portfolio in 2022… through increasing exposure to infrastructure, private debt and real estate4.”
