Founder & CEO
Michael Weisz is the Founder and CEO of Yieldstreet, a digital wealth management platform striving to change the way financial products are delivered and the way wealth is created. In 2019, Yieldstreet was named Inc 5000’s 14th fastest growing company, #1 in NY, and # 1 in Financial Services. Michael is responsible for Yieldstreet’s investment strategy and originator network and has overseen $2 billion in transactions over his career.
Michael began his career at a $1.2 billion New York-based credit fund, working his way to Vice President before co-founding his own fund in 2013. During his 10 years on the institutional side of the business, he grew frustrated that access to superior wealth creation opportunities was not accessible to individual investors. In 2015, he teamed with Milind Mehere to create Yieldstreet. When not working late, you can find Mr. Weisz spending time with his wife and three kids or hosting dinners at his home in Long Island - bringing together friends and family from all backgrounds.
