Your frequently asked questions, answered.

Is art a good investment?

Investing in art allows investors to invest in what they love, while also allowing them to potentially capitalize on the historical returns generated by the art market. Art can occupy an important space in your portfolio as it can serve as a hedge against inflation, add diversification and potentially reduce overall portfolio volatility given its typically low correlation to the stock market.

How do I start investing in art?

Investors may access and purchase art in several types of markets. The traditional way has been to work with a dealer, use an auction house or go to art fairs. However, purchasing physical artworks outright can be cost prohibitive and difficult unless you have connections in the industry. 

One expanding area of the market is the digital art space. Yieldstreet now offers fractional investment in physical artworks by blue-chip, mid-career and emerging artists, as well as providing investors with the opportunity to invest in loans backed by artworks that generate monthly income.

What am I investing in? Am I buying individual pieces of artwork?

On Yieldstreet you can invest in portfolios of art backed loans and fractionalized shares of actual artworks by blue-chip, mid-career and emerging artists. You are not purchasing individual pieces of artwork.

How often do I get paid?

Each offering has its own payment terms, so you should carefully review the offering materials. It is common for art-backed loans to pay interest on a monthly basis with principal repayment at loan maturity. An investment in one of our Art Equity Funds will generate returns on an event basis, i.e. at the time of sale of the underlying artworks.

What are the risks of investing in art?

Art investments carry a wide range of risks and expenses. Some of the risks include illiquidity, and non-transparent and fluctuating prices. To learn about all of the risks associated with art investing, please review each art investment offering page and download the Series Note Supplement/Private Placement Memorandums before making an investment.
