Private markets

Help boost your retirement with this wealth-building combo

Maximize the potential of higher returns with less volatility by adding private market investments to your tax-advantaged account.

Extensive opportunities

We offer more alternative asset classes for IRAs than any other platform — everything from real estate to private credit to crypto.

Support for all major accounts

Roll over a 401(k); transfer all, or a portion of a traditional IRA, Roth IRA, SEP IRA, or SIMPLE IRA; or contribute new funding.

Get started in 5 minutes

Most accounts can be funded in just a few days, and our concierge team is here to assist every step of the way.

Take your retirement off autopilot

Your retirement dollars are among the most important to optimize due to their tax efficiencies, making IRAs an ideal vehicle for enhanced private market growth and income.

Protect your wealth

Don’t leave your entire retirement portfolio vulnerable to public market volatility. Diversify with generally lower-correlation private assets.

Compound long-term growth

With a generally longer time horizon, a retirement account can be ideal to let less-liquid private market assets target higher risk-adjusted returns.

Keep more of what you earn

Instead of realizing income or capital gains each time a private market investment matures, let it compound with tax advantages in a retirement account.

Extensive opportunities, one platform

We’ve developed innovative structures that unlock previously restricted investments for IRAs. More than 85% of our investments are available to retirement accounts.

  1. 10. Returns based on the past 15 years of historical data from Cambridge, NCREIF, S&P, Bloomberg, as of 6/30/22. Returns are cumulative and do not consider the impact of any fees/expenses. The Private Market Portfolio is a composite index comprised of 40% Private Equity (Cambridge PE Buyout Index) / 30% Private Credit (Cambridge Direct Lending Index) / 30% Private Real Estate (NCREIF Property Index). The Traditional Portfolio is a composite index comprised of 60% Stocks (S&P 500 Index) / 40% Bonds (Bloomberg US Aggregate Index). Indexes are unmanaged and have been provided for comparison purposes only. You cannot invest directly in an index.The taxable account represents a constant tax rate of 37% (the current top ordinary income rate). 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.
  2. 11. This graph is an illustrative model comparing how an account of $100,000 earning an annualized return of 9.7%, compounded annually, over 25 years would fare in a taxable account versus in a tax-deferred account (IRA). The model assumes no other contributions to or distributions from the account over the period and assumes the reinvestment of any dividends and other earnings. The "Taxable" account reflects the application of a constant tax rate of 37% (the current top ordinary income tax rate) on any such dividends and other earnings each year. The "Tax-deferred or tax-free" account assumes no taxes are assessed on dividends or other earnings in the account.

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.
