What happens if a borrower defaults?

Investment offerings listed on Yieldstreet carry a certain amount of risk, which should be carefully considered on a case-by-case basis and prospective investors are urged to read the risk factors for each offering. All opportunities on Yieldstreet are asset-based, which means they are backed by an underlying asset such as a real estate property, marine vessel or legal settlement. If a borrower defaults, we work aggressively and pragmatically to bring the borrower into compliance with their payments obligation where possible, and pursue litigation where appropriate. When needed, Yieldstreet’s loan recovery approach is based on the specific facts and circumstances, including those of the borrower, collateral and the default itself. The following case study shows how Yieldstreet was able to achieve 100% recovery of investor principal and outstanding interest in the wake of a 2020 default. However, it is important to note that in any default situation, there is always an associated risk that you may not be able to fully recover your principal commitment. The following case study shows how Yieldstreet’s loan recovery plans can be structured to ensure borrowers repay investors, even in the event of a global pandemic.
