How does this work? What can I invest in?

Yieldstreet is an alternative investment platform that connects you to income-generating investments that traditionally have been reserved for institutions and the ultra-wealthy.

These alternative investment opportunities are typically backed by collateral, and span across various asset classes such as art finance, real estate, commercial finance, legal finance, and more. These asset classes have been known to generate returns for decades, but have typically been closed off to retail investors.

How often do I get paid?

Our offerings typically have predefined payment schedules, (i.e. monthly or quarterly payments), while other investments will distribute interest and principal based on the occurrence of certain events, such as a case settlement event within a legal finance investment.

The anticipated payment schedule is always outlined on the offering page of the investment offering documentation as well as the Series Note Supplement or Investment Memorandum

What sort of returns can I expect?

Historically, Yieldstreet has achieved a 9.71% net annualized return (IRR).

*All investments involve risk, including loss of principal. The chart shown by this simulator represents hypothetical performance that assumes a fixed annual rate of return entered by the user over a pre-defined time period. Certain investments do not even provide for a fixed annual rate of return, so this simulator will not accurately reflect potential investment results for those investments.Importantly, this simulator does not take into consideration expenses, economic conditions, market conditions or any other uncertainties or risks described in the investment offering materials for each investment. Because all of those factors impact performance, Yieldstreet investors’ actual investment results may materially differ from the hypothetical results calculated by this simulator. The calculation is illustrative only and should not be considered as investment advice by Yieldstreet to you or any recommendation by Yieldstreet to buy or sell a particular security or investment product. You should consult with your own investment, tax, financial and legal advisers prior to making any investments and/or making any financial decisions based on any calculations produced by this simulator.
