Extends category leadership with nearly $3 billion AUM, institutional distribution channels and platform capabilities

November 30, 2023 (NEW YORK, New York) — Yieldstreet, a leading private market investment platform, today announced a definitive agreement to acquire Cadre, an online, real-estate-focused investment platform that serves institutional and high net worth investors. 

Yieldstreet extends its category leadership and welcomes Cadre’s flagship institutional clients, unique investment platform and thousands of high net worth investors. With collective Investment Value of more than $9.7 billion1, investors have allocated $5.3 billion on the platforms2 and received $3.1 billion in returns to date3. Investors will gain access to a variety of additional asset classes for diversification, as well as increased liquidity and convenience through proprietary platform capabilities like a secondary market. Together, Yieldstreet and Cadre serve more than 500,000 members across eight institutional and retail distribution channels.

Chief Executive Officer of Yieldstreet, Michael Weisz, said, “Yieldstreet set out to create a category eight years ago. Today, we are leading the industry forward and setting the stage for accelerated growth, both organic and inorganic. We will continue to pursue strategic opportunities to increase revenue, enhance profitability, drive operating synergies, and unlock new channels for distribution or exceptional technology. Expanding complementary distribution channels and markets beyond the U.S., investment portfolios and capabilities with Cadre is just the beginning. We are thrilled to welcome Cadre to the Yieldstreet family.”

Yieldstreet is excited to welcome Cadre’s team, including its entire investments team led by Chief Investment Officer Dan Rosenbloom. Ryan Williams will remain CEO of Cadre and spearhead a new division focused on broadening access to the institutional audience as Yieldstreet’s Global Head of Institutional Partnerships & Clients. Industry veteran Mike Fascitelli, an investor in and advisor to Cadre, will now serve as the Global Chairman of Real Estate and Head of Cadre’s Investment Committee. 

“After nearly a decade of building a top-tier real estate investment platform that has generated compelling returns for institutional investors, we are incredibly proud to take the next step in our journey to broaden access to institutional real estate and other alternative asset classes alongside Yieldstreet,” said Cadre Founder and CEO Ryan Williams. “Together with Yieldstreet, we look forward to helping expand institutional distribution and broadening its offering of institutional-caliber products and innovative solutions that reduce friction for investors in private markets.” 

Yieldstreet and Cadre’s constant pursuit of a better, more complete private market investing experience made the firms a natural fit. With key partners like Thrive Capital, Andreessen Horowitz, and Khosla Ventures, Cadre brings an exceptional institutional partner and client list that will accelerate distribution to institutional channels, as well as a real estate portfolio that complements Yieldstreet’s own established offering. 

Yieldstreet helps investors build the most diversified portfolios of private market investments in the industry with an engaging investor experience rooted in simplicity, transparency and trust. Its sophisticated technology and platform streamlines the process of investing in offerings that meet rigorous due diligence standards, enabling private market investment distribution at scale.

1 Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Any historical returns, expected returns, or probability projections may not reflect actual future performance. All securities involve risk and may result in significant losses.

3 "Annual interest," "Annualized Return" or "Target Returns" represents a projected annual target rate of interest or annualized target return, and not returns or interest actually obtained by fund investors. “Term" represents the estimated term of the investment; the term of the fund is generally at the discretion of the fund’s manager, and may exceed the estimated term by a significant amount of time. Unless otherwise specified on the fund's offering page, target interest or returns are based on an analysis performed by Yieldstreet of the potential inflows and outflows related to the transactions in which the strategy or fund has engaged and/or is anticipated to engage in over the estimated term of the fund. There is no guarantee that targeted interest or returns will be realized or achieved or that an investment will be successful. Actual performance may deviate from these expectations materially, including due to market or economic factors, portfolio management decisions, modelling error, or other reasons.

4 Reflects the annualized distribution rate that is calculated by taking the most recent quarterly distribution approved by the Fund's Board of Directors and dividing it by prior quarter-end NAV and annualizing it. The Fund’s distribution may exceed its earnings. Therefore, a portion of the Fund’s distribution may be a return of the money you originally invested and represent a return of capital to you for tax purposes.

5 Represents the sum of the interest accrued in the statement period plus the interest paid in the statement period.

6 The internal rate of return ("IRR") represents an average net realized IRR with respect to all matured investments, excluding our Short Term Notes program, weighted by the investment size of each individual investment, made by private investment vehicles managed by YieldStreet Management, LLC from July 1, 2015 through and including July 18th, 2022, after deduction of management fees and all other expenses charged to investments.

The prospectus for the Yieldstreet Alternative Income Fund contains this and other information about the Fund and can be obtained by emailing [email protected] or by referring to www.yieldstreetalternativeincomefund.com. The prospectus should be read carefully before investing in the Fund. Investments in the Fund are not bank deposits (and thus not insured by the FDIC or by any other federal governmental agency) and are not guaranteed by Yieldstreet or any other party.
