YieldStreet Reaches Milestone with Over $317 Million Invested by Retail Investors as Company Growth Accelerates

– Alternative Asset Platform Also Announces Launch of Account Balances –

NEW YORK–()–YieldStreet, the alternative investment platform striving to change the way wealth is created, today announced strong company growth to close out Q1 2018, including:
  • Over $317M invested by retail investors since inception in 2015. This represents a year over year (YOY) increase of 203%.
  • Over 163K individual principal and interest payments made to investors, totaling over $117M.
  • 91 offerings have launched to date, 17 have fully matured.
  • One of the most recent YieldStreet investment offerings sold out in 7 seconds.
  • New record raise of more than $671K invested per second on the YieldStreet platform.*
Also in Q1 2018, YieldStreet released a new feature, Account Balances, which allows investors to hold funds directly in their YieldStreet accounts. Using Account Balances, YieldStreet will deposit future principal and interest distributions directly into investors’ YieldStreet account so that it can be easily reinvested, reducing cash drag and allowing the opportunity to build a rolling portfolio. This also gives investors the ability to transfer funds into their YieldStreet account and withdraw funds at any time. Since its inception in 2015, YieldStreet now has tens of thousands of members, which represents an average annual growth rate of more than 900% from 2015 – 2017. “YieldStreet has demonstrated a strong product market fit by providing access to alternative, institutional grade products that earn passive income and higher target yields that most investors didn’t previously have. We believe we are the only platform offering a diverse asset class portfolio and that model is resonating given the volatility in the stock market,” said Milind Mehere, Founder and CEO. “YieldStreet continues to focus on redefining wealth creation and expanding into more areas to help investors create a diversified portfolio. Five years from now, YieldStreet aims to be the only platform you use.” Most YieldStreet investment opportunities have low stock market correlation and target yields of 8-20%, across litigation finance, real estate and other alternative asset classes. YieldStreet investments are debt based, typically senior secured and backed by collateral, which means its investors are first in line to be repaid in the event of a default. In January, YieldStreet announced that it closed a $113M financing round, led by Greycroft and Raine Ventures, and a large New York based family office. With a $100M revolving credit facility, YieldStreet always closes an offering first on its balance sheet before launching on the platform. Typical investments range from $5M-$50M. About YieldStreet YieldStreet is changing the way wealth is created, providing access to asset based investments historically unavailable to most investors. YieldStreet allows you to participate in opportunities with low stock market correlation and target yields of 8-20%, across litigation finance, real estate and other alternative asset classes. We believe our technology platform creates a unique experience for investors at every level and provides valuable diversification and strength to most portfolios.
